[chirp_users] Import from stock config - option not available

Continuing the testing, I installed chirp with "python setup.py install" 
while in the "chirp-daily-20150513" directory.

Setup installed the stock config files in 
"/usr/local/share/chirp/stock_configs" while the chirp expects to find 
them in "/usr/share/chirp/stock_configs".

Looks like a misunderstanding between chirp and the setup.py defaults, 
that may affect Mac as well as Ubuntu.

Quick and dirty fix, I created a symbolic link at the expected directory 
with "ln -s ../local/share/chirp /usr/share/chirp".  I think I had to 
restart chirp twice before it picked up the "File->Open stock config" 
and "Radio>Import from stock config" menu items.
