Allow relocating locales to the system directory on Linux

Toshio Kuratomi avatarToshio Kuratomi created an issue

I'm helping maintain the sphinx package in Fedora and we recently got a request to move the locale files and javascript files holding translations into the directories that are proper under Linux. The reporter sent a patch that Debian Linux has been using for a while. I took a look and modified the Debian patch so that we first search for the locales where sphinx installs them by default (in a locale subdirectory of the sphinx package directory and if not found there, looks in sys.prefix + share/locale (the default directory)

This should let things continue working the same way unless the system packager moves the locale files manually.
