Compare two Uniforum style .po files to check that both contain the
same set of msgid strings. The def.po file is an existing PO file
with the translations. The ref.pot file is the last created PO file,
or a PO Template file (generally created by xgettext). This is
useful for checking that you have translated each and every message
in your program. Where an exact match cannot be found, fuzzy
matching is used to produce better diagnostics.
