Don't use debconf-gettextize.

It was meant for times when packages were using the "old style" way to
translate templates (does anyone around still remember how it worked?

If your templates file uses the po-debconf way (prepending some fields
with "_"), whet you need is "debconf-updatepo".

PS: i18n issues are better being discussed in debian-i18n. I
understand that you sent this here mostly because you're working on
templates that were reviewed by this list (what package, by the way? I
don't remember us working on packages of yours, recently).
