  SVG icons not shown / "yelp </path/to/file.page>" fails

Bug description:
  The latest yelp version in Xenial doesn't show SVG icons in Ubuntu
  Help. Example icon:


  SVG files are displayed in GNOME Help, but there they use relative
  paths to the files (included in package). Don't understand why that
  would make a difference, though.

  Another issue is that calling yelp with the path to a .page file as
  argument fails with: "Unknown Error - URL cannot be shown".

  Downgrading to the Wily version 3.16.1-1ubuntu1 of yelp and libyelp0
  fixes both issues.
