Updated potfiles to work with multiple domains setup. Fixed also some other issues that prevented me from getting any sensible results from it (mainly stemming from the fact that dot in "./" or "../" gets translated to "any character" in regexp and not to literal dot)

(file #21845, file #21846)

Patch #4454 refers to use of intltool to perform what I think is a similar function. Perhaps potfiles should be deprecated in favour of that.

(There are other scripts which I haven't checked: translations/freeciv/{check_po.pl,statistics.rb}

This script (which is for Freeciv developers' internal use and not distributed) has not been updated for the move from po/ to translations/ .

What exactly it should now do will depend on the outcome of plans in patch #4190 etc, so I don't propose anyone work on it now; just noting that it's currently busted so we don't forget.
