Xpra: Ticket #720: Path adjustments needed when installed with --user

When installed from source with setup.py install --user, the generated xpra.conf still points the xvfb to /etc/ to find the xorg.conf file rather than adjusting to the account-local path where the generated xorg.conf has been installed.

Also .xpra/xpra.conf is not populated, and must be moved/symlinked from e.g. .local/etc/xpra.conf, or xpra should check there as well.

Yes, that's a known bug. Thanks for the ticket. distutils makes this harder than it should be.

It's more difficult than it looks, the xpra.conf file is generated during the build step... the install step may use a different path, yet we need to know the path to set the location of the xorg.conf file referenced in this config file.
