use "enoptions" resource name for unknown locales
This is a follow up to https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=254702
running "env LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8 netsurf-gtk3 -v" : the browser starts fine, preferences windows does not open, the logfile says
(9.232225) frontends/gtk/preferences.c:982 GtkWidget *nsgtk_preferences(struct browser_window *, GtkWindow *): Preferences UI builder init failed
running "env LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 netsurf-gtk3 -v" : the browser starts fine, the preferences window does open in French.
I have traced this back to the issue with the patch for https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=254702: fallback UI resource name has been called "enoption" and not "enoptions".
FreeBSD locale problems have been also reported https://bugs.netsurf-browser.org/mantis/view.php?id=2045 maybe our solution is worth upstreaming.
I think the whole fix to the issue at hand is a bit shabby, maybe we could come up with something better.
Quick fix attached.
