[Bf-committers] Setting a default system scripts directory

Just looked into making locale path use BLI_gethome_folder so it would
find the system dir and found the existing function in blf_lang.c

See http://www.pasteall.org/8131/c

On testing it I found scons/cmake/make didnt define INTERNATIONAL so
no-matter what this code didnt run and is probably untested, coped
from 2.4x.

Its tempting to replace all this with a call to...
 BLI_gethome_folder("locale", BLI_GETHOME_ALL);

Which works on Linux but other OS's need to be supported too.
Anyone know this code and able to suggest weather it should be kept or not?
As Is it uses hard-coded path /usr/share/locale on non mac/win32 OS's
which I find odd.
GSR, good to see you made a start on file i/o, LZO compression would
be great to have on blendfiles :)
