  Log Message:
  [#1719,helpers][xs]: fixes #1719 - broken link for users without a real gravatar.

* Problem: we were providing a default user icon to gravatar (see http://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/images/). However, we were not providing an *absolute* url just the relevative url on the CKAN instance (also weren't url-encoding the link ...). This led to the following 404 url: http://en.gravatar.com/images/icons/user.png
* Fix: use identicon default image from gravatar (no longer provide our own default image).
  * Could have corrected this but felt simpler option from multiple persepectives (code, resource usage, ux) was to do this.
