- Use gettext as fallback to get potential distro translations for
polkit actions. Similar mechnism as used for desktop file
translations. That way it's possible to use weblate to add
additional translations that are not provided by upstream

- Use pkgconfig() instead of requiring systemd package names directly.

- systemd.pc is shipped by systemd main package (bsc#983167)
Strangely polkit wants systemd.pc to detect that the target system
is running systemd even if its configured to build systemd support...
