replace non ASCII-characters

Compilation fails because of non-ASCII characters in string:

/usr/bin/xgettext: Non-ASCII string at src/plugins/libravatar/libravatar.c:438.
                   Please specify the source encoding through --from-code.
Makefile:400: recipe for target 'claws-mail.pot-update' failed

Patch is attached.

thanks for the patch!
Comment 2 Ricardo Mones 2014-03-18 18:30:46 CET
Despite the first diff is correct (because it's how menu path references are usually written within the project), the quotes (or other UTF-8 char) should represent no problem, so fallback to ASCII is not the right fix.

Proposal is to add "--from-code=UTF-8"¹ to XGETTEXT_OPTIONS in po/Makevars.

Like this? Looks like it compiles fine.
