The .po files are the input for the translators, these files are not used 
during application runtime.
Part of the "build" process for translations is a task that generates .mo 
files from these which can then be loaded by applications.

If you distributor doesn't have them for your target language, then I guess 
the simplest way is to contact the translation team.
At least some of its members are likely to have the .mo files for testing and 
thus know exactly where to put them.
