Unless I misread, po4a uses gettext which isn't initialized in any of the X.Org modules. This may come as a surprise for those who have been routinely working on translation for years.
The po4a (PO for anything) project goal is to ease translations (and
more interestingly, the maintenance of translations) using gettext
tools on areas where they were not expected like documentation.
Adding proper support for gettext with AM_GNU_GETTEXT is not difficult, I had a play with it a while ago, but it brings a load of files and it's share of quirks and workarounds. If this man page is the only translatable item we will ever add, then ...<BR>
