No. The default is to use internal translate-toolkit.

Run git pull and run ./autogen.sh again. If you pass
--with-system-translate-toolkit option to configure, and your
translate-toolkit does not know the --skipsource option,  then
configure script will warn you:

po2oo does not support --skipsource; use translate-toolkit >= 1.9 or
use --without-system-translate-toolkit

Best regards,
