Bug Description

If you run:

tools/ python build_sphinx

The build will fail with an error about not being able to find a css file. The css file exists, but somewhere for some reason when running in a virtualenv the path lookup that's being done in docutils gets broken.

This only happens in Nova, which is perplexing. It's probably a bug in docutils, plus something we're doing in nova but not elsewhere.

    Finally fix the docs venv bug.

    Closes bug 902846.

    Turns out that without providing a default css file,
    docutils tries to pull one in from a location using
    very bad path logic. Glance was providing the css file
    explicitly and it worked, so I just copied them.
