Use "--previous" when updating PO files for manpages

The attached patch is meant to use the "--previous" version of po4a
(implemented in po4a 0.31) when (re)generating PO files for manpages.

That would allow translators to more easily figure out what changed in
a strings when it has been fuzzied by a change in the original string.

We briefly discussed this with Guillem today.
