[PATCH] Prefer Python 3 tools

The last three commits already made configure recommend installing
Python 3 packages and look for versioned executables, however with a low

This is a problem on systems such as OpenBSD 6.5 with a default Python
version at 2.7, where 3.7 flavored Python packages get installed with
a "-3" binary suffix.  That is, when both rst2man and rst2man-3 are
installed at configure time, the lower version will be picked unless
explicitly passed through `--with-feature' arguments.

Regardless of this specific case, trying more specificly versioned tool
names first seems correctly in line with recent development and less
error prone, so change it accordingly.
