Bug#4727: Manpages how to use them

Christoph Lameter:
> export LC_MESSAGES=de_DE
> waterf:/usr/src/linux$ man init

At least the version of manpages-de that I have, does not have
a German page for init. man then gives the English page. I used
ar(1) as my test page, and this worked for me.

It might be nice if man could give an option warning if it needs
to use an English page, when LANG or LC_MESSAGES is defined.
