Subject[PATCH 0/5] Add a script to check for Sphinx install requirements
Sphinx installation is not trivial, as not all versions are supported,
and it requires a lot of stuff for math, images and PDF/LaTeX output
to work.

So, add a script that checks if everything is fine, providing
distro-specific hints about what's needed for it to work.

I posted already RFC patches for the first patch in this series along
this weekend at linux-doc ML. The current version of the script
will provide hints for some popular distributions. I tested myself
on a couple of release-based and rolling popular distributions:

- Fedora 25 and 26;
- Ubuntu 17.04;
- OpenSuse Tumbleweed;
- Arch Linux;
- Gentoo.

I tested compilation with both htmldocs and pdfdocs targets[1].
Yet, tests (and fix patches) are welcomed :-)

[1] There's an unrelated bug with the Kernel's sphinx extension
kimage: when parsing GraphViz graphs, it uses "-Tpdf" argument,
in order to generate a PDF image. That doesn't work on some
distros, as GraphViz doesn't support PDF images.
