fix CUPS localization

Sorry for my English.

net-print/cups has lost localization - see bug #450220
This is very inconvenient for users who do not speak English: localization has been removed for command line tools and also for a web interface.

Many localization files CUPS are incomplete - contains empty msgstr in locale/*.po for untranslated parts.
*.po files installed "as is" and there is problem described in #450220

To fix the problem, it is possible to convert the *.po files into *.mo with msgfmt and install *.mo instead *.po
In this case, the empty msgstr not fall into *.mo files and stay in English, but many messages are localized.

In the attachment is a small patch for the current stable CUPS version - 1.5.2
