This goes on top of my other localization patches!

This patch replaces xgettext with a custom pygettext to generate
translatable strings from plugin files in ipalib/plugins. pygettext
was modified to handle plural forms (credit goes to Jan Hendrik
Goellner) and had some bugs fixed by myself. We only use it for
plugins, because it's the only place where we need to extract
docstrings for the built-in help system.

I also had to make some changes to the way the built-in
documentation system gets docstrings from modules for this to work.

How to test?

First, apply all of the localization patches found in thread
"Localization patches" on freeipa-devel. Then apply this patch.

Regenerate your install/po/Makefile:
- delete install/po/Makefile
- run `./configure` in install

Regenerate the pot and po files:
- run `make update-pot` in install/po
- run `make update-po` in install/po

I noticed that none of the .po files is regenerated when we run make
dist. Is that intentional? I think that all the released tarballs should
contain up-to-date translations.

Make a change to one of the translations:
- example: add translation to the ACI docstring
   * find docstring for ACI in install/po/es.po
   * change the corresponding msgstr "" to
     msgstr "\nBuenos dias, amigos!\n"

Note: if the translatable string begins with \n, the translation
also needs to begin with \n. Same goes for ending.

Install the modified translations:
- run `make install` in install/po

Note: I had some problems with this and had to make rpms and install
IPA from beginning for it to work. Looks like doing `make install`
manually updates /usr/local/share/locale instead of
/usr/share/locale, but maybe I just did something wrong.

./configure --datadir=/usr/share

My buildscript contains a variation of "rpm -E %configure".
