Add tool to build a doc latex pdf

The sphinx latex generation generates invalid latex that won't compile
when you try to use it.[1][2] This commit adds a helper script to generate
the sphinx latex and then modify it so it'll work. It depends on
ImageMagick convert and sed being available to work.

Building a PDF of the Documentation
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
If you'd like a PDF of the documentation, you'll need LaTeX and ImageMagick
installed, and additionally some fonts. On Ubuntu systems, you can get what you
need with::
apt-get install texlive-latex-recommended texlive-latex-extra texlive-fonts-recommended
apt-get install texlive-full imagemagick
Then run ``build_sphinx_latex``, change to the build dir and run ``make``.
Like so::
Then you can then use the ``build_latex_pdf.sh`` script in toos/ to take care
of both the the sphinx latex generation and the latex compilation. For example::
tox -evenv -- python setup.py build_sphinx_latex
cd build/sphinx/latex
make
tools/build_latex_pdf.sh
You should wind up with a PDF - Nova.pdf.
The script must be run from the root of the Nova repository and it'll copy the
output pdf to Nova.pdf in that directory.
