Bug Description

Currently pottery just checks for the presence of POTFILES.in but that file is nowadays also used by plain gettext, too. Since this is not a sufficient criterion, I suggest to simply search build files for the term "intltool". If it is mentioned, it is very likely that it is being used. Files to search should include:
autogen.sh
configure[.ac|.in]
configure
Makefile[.in]

This should be pretty easy for someone interested in to finish off, given that we already do content inspection.
