You can either

  - ask the package maintainer which gettext version he is using, or

  - send the maintainer a new-syntax PO file, and let him use
     env OLD_PO_FILE_OUTPUT=yes msgmerge-0.10.37 zh.po PACKAGE.pot -o
    to convert it to an old-syntax PO file, or

  - submit an UTF-8 encoded PO file and hope all your users have installed
    glibc-2.2 or gettext-0.10.37, which will do the conversion to the user's
    encoding on the fly.
