Bug#1978: man: default pager should be less

>>>>> "Raul" == Raul Miller <rdm@tad.micro.umn.edu> writes:

<Raul> Another option might be to have man point more at the catman file
<Raul> rather than at a pipe.

<Raul> more can go backwords if it's given a seekable file.

IMHO, the problem is with "more" not with "man". One must not try
to adapt a good program just to make it work together with a deficient
one (still IMHO, of course).
