Pottery needs to be better at finding out the package name

Bug Description

Currently pottery looks for "GETTEXT_PACKAGE" in po/Makefile.in.in, configure.ac, configure.in. But that may just be assigned from another variable like "PACKAGE" or even "AC_PACKAGE_NAME". The latter is not assigned directly in the file but by the call to AC_INIT. Here it could be the fourth argument (tar name) or the first.

Another problem is that "DOMAIN" on po/Makevars may be assigned from another variable, too, but the current code does no further substitutions.

Pottery needs to check all these posibilities.
