Make `makemessages --help` more useful

Calling django-admin makemessages Without any option gives::

  Error: Type ' help makemessages' for usage.

But calling django-admin help makemessages doesn't produce a very clear documentation. Suggestions:

  • the overview description should mention that one of options -l and -a is required.
  • remove the word "only" in description of -l option ("Creates or updates the message files for the given locale (e.g. pt_BR).")
  • change the description of -a option to "Updates the message files for all existing locales."

(In [15302]) Fixed #14419 -- Enhanced the help text of the makemessages management command. Thanks lsaffre for the report and suggestions and gruszczy for the patch.
Also, removed the sterile, scripts and dead compatibility code in makemessages.
