I see the problem.
I am not sure, but can you make something like:
for $file in ddtp-po.*
cat $file >> po/template.po
after your sripte. Gettext should handel this...
Maybe 'msgmerge' can help. If I understand it in the right way, you can
use this to merge two po-files...

maybe for base-config. But 'all' the other packages don't use
cvs.debian.org, don't use translated debconf templates, don't support
changes in search some translators etc.
Maybe some of the base-config template translators can use this
translations in the ddtp and can update your po files per hand...
FYI: only 800 debconf templates and we have all debconf templates from
sid translated into german :-)
