 Rename "Avatar" to "Profile Photo".

 "Profile photo" is probably more easily understood by most people (and
 translators), and better describes what BuddyPress' member and group
 avatar features actually are; that we're asking for a person's photograph.
 Sometimes, avatar can mean "graphic" or "illustration".

 This subtle change in phrasing also makes BuddyPress more consistent with
 the significant majority of other online platform services (Twitter,
 Facebook, etc).

 Fixes #5758, props sooskriszta
