Summary0002150: make install logic for "C" language directory is wrong, Message file not found
Description1) g_get_language_names() returns "C"
2) make install produces invalid symlink: $prefix/share/netsurf/C/messages points to ../../../$DESTDIR/$prefix/share/netsurf/C/Messages (not existing)

in my case prefix is "" (i.e. empty, that means share goes to /share, bin to /bin, etc)
and DESTDIR is /opt/netsurf
$ la /share/netsurf/C/

i propose the following solution:
instead of symlinking all the files under C/ (to themselves with wrong path), just symlink en *directory* to C, i.e.
ln -sf en C
that way the symlink is always right, not matter where it ends up as long as en stays in the same base dir.

restructured so all resources with language specialisation now fall back to the english versions.

Updated the install target appropriately
