You'll need to autoreconf the source tree and configure it.

To update both you can run 'make update-po', to only update the .pot
file, you can run 'make $domain.pot-update', with domain being one of
dpkg, dpkg-dev, dselect.

For the man pages 'make man.stamp', which I should probably unify with
the rest to use the same form.

I usually try to do that way before the release but that's one of the
problems of keeping autogenerated files under an scm (which is just
wrong), you have to keep them in sync all the time, and it pollutes
the commits, etc.
