We will feed xgettext with more C source files and in different order
in subsequent commit. To generate a stable "po/git.pot" regardless of
the number and order of input source files, we pass the option
"--sort-by-file" to xgettext program.

With this update, the newly generated "po/git.pot" will have the same
entries while in a different order.

With the help of a custom diff driver as shown below,

    git config --global diff.gettext-fmt.textconv \
        "msgcat --no-location --sort-by-file"

and appending a new entry "*.pot diff=gettext-fmt" to git attributes,
we can see that there are no substantial changes in "po/git.pot".

We won't checkin the newly generated "po/git.pot", because we will
remove it from tree in a later commit.
