Bug#2095: man doesn't render manpages using latin1 characters correctly

Package: man
Version: 2.3.10-6

Man doesn't display correctly any manpages containing latin1
characters. Just try 'man iso_8859_1' and 'man -Tlatin1 iso_8859_1 | less'
I'd suggest to use latin1 as standard device for manpages, not ascii
as both X and the linux console use latin1 encoding as standard.
