[PD-dev] search plugin in Pd-extended

I just checked in some changes to search-plugin to try the translation stuff.
 First, I added [_ ""] to most of the strings there.  The rest I left because
they'll need a little more work.  Then I added a 'po' folder with a Makefile
to generate the translations.  I mostly did this to have a dev environment for
trying out having translation support for plugins.
