Unfortunately, it's not an easy regexp to write, so I'm not sure that we
can easily create a syntax check rule.  In general, it's tough, because
the problem is a multi-line issue: the problem only happens when
_("...") is the last argument to a printf-style function, but was not
preceded by a "%s" argument.  How do you find the end of a _("...")
string which might span multiple lines, to see if the next byte was ')'?

But we could make ./autobuild.sh do a --disable-nls build, as I
periodically run autobuild.sh.
