The message is in two places:

- webapp/xwiki/templates/docdoesnotexist.vm is the velocity template 
that generates the page as a whole
- in the translation file is the exact text; the file is packed inside 

If you look inside the template, you'll notice that it already allows to 
easily override the message. All you have to do is create 
XWiki.DocumentDoesNotExist and put your content in there.
