Bug#2106: man 2.3.10-6 contains bad shell scripts

Package: man
Version: 2.3.10-6

The `man' scripts in /etc/cron.daily and /etc/cron.weekly do not begin
with `#!/bin/sh', so they never get executed by run-parts.

As I understand it, the perl version of run-parts would silently fail
to run scripts like this.  As of miscutils 1.3-7, run-parts complains

Also, /etc/cron.weekly/man generates output which gets e-mailed to root
every week.  This is probably unnecessary.
