I think that there is a minor GnuPG problem here (not MacOS).

I haven't located the bug yet, but I could see the problem of
en at quot.po, when I build with git repo having old en at quot.po.

Note that in the release, we have po/en at quot.po which is correctly
updated and po/en at which is correctly generated.

In the git repo, we have an entry of po/en at quot.po in the .gitignore,
so, I think that it is not maintained in the repo.  When a developer
happens to have old po/en at quot.po, it will be merged by msgmerge and
it would result fuzzy entries with mismatches of newline.

For me, removing po/en at quot.po (so that it will be rebuild from
gnupg2.pot), it works fine.
