Nope. po is not copied across, and inst _is_ used to install message catalogues. So inst/po is quite to be expected. (The difference is that po contains sources of translations, and inst/po contains compiled translations. The naming is a bit different too (we didn't invent this).)

Probably chtml should be added to cater for Windows which (optionally) uses it.
