If that's the case on xubuntu (or any other Debian-based derivative
distribution), then you probably want to install the autopoint and
gettext packages and re-run `./configure`.

But I see Yuri's attached sane-backends.pot file has got you going
already based on [your merge request][1] to add Hebrew ;-)

Or perhaps not, seeing that you closed it.  The CI build failure
happened because you did not add a `po/he.po` file yet.  From the
[alpine build log][2]

  make[3]: Entering directory '/builds/e1907/backends/po'
  File he.po does not exist. If you are a translator, you can create it through 'msginit'.
  make[3]: *** [Makefile:548: he.po-create] Error 1

 [2]: https://gitlab.com/e1907/backends/-/jobs/94570172

If you add one, the CI build should got a lot smoother, even if you
don't translate a single message :-)

BTW, I'll keep your [request to join to backends project][3] pending for
now, at least until you're up to speed ;-)  Hope you don't mind.
