This is a build bug, but it's not a particularly important one.  You
can either skip over it (make -k) or `touch` the missing file,
and the build should be fine.

However the bug is interesting.  perl/lib/Sys/Guestfs.c doesn't contain
any translatable strings, and there is supposed to be excluded from
po/POTFILES by this line:

https://github.com/libguestfs/libguestfs/blob/48d4117789e92489b9a3c6f3456b0770b3fdb290/Makefile.am#L334

but despite that the file still gets listed in po/POTFILES.  So I
wonder why that is ...

Comment 2 Marius Cirsta 2017-01-29 13:33:49 UTC
 I was able to easily fix it but I just thought you should know about it and maybe fix.
 It's always nice to have a clean build no matter what configuration you choose.

Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2017-01-29 13:35:04 UTC
Oh I see, the regexp is wrong.  Fixed in:

https://github.com/libguestfs/libguestfs/commit/c9a51b2fd27b269f5250904040667282ffaaebbb

which will be in libguestfs 1.35.21 & 1.34.4.
