[ANN] packages available for po4a

I prepared packages for po4a (PO for anything), which is a versatile PO to/from other documentation formats converter.

po4a eases translations and their maintenance, allowing gettext's usage on unexpected areas like documentation.

In po4a each documentation format is handled by a module, that converts this format to/from PO. Formats included in po4a-0.45 are:
BibTex, Dia, Halibut, KernelHelp, LaTeX, Man, POD, SGML, TeX, Texinfo, Text, WML, XHTML, XML.

For details see the index @

I will submit the SlackBuilds to shortly, meanwhile packages and build material are already available at

PS Though this be not a request to include po4a in Slackware-14.1, of course I would be very happy if that happen :-)
