Bug#279685: gencat: manual page fixup
The manual page for gencat has a "\fT" instead of a "\fR" which causes
all of the first paragraph to be boldface rather than just the word
"gencat". I think it makes sense to mark "catgets" as boldface as well,
and it might be good to add a "(3)" afterwards.
Options are better shown with .TP paragraphs. They are more visually
distinctive this way, when the explanations are indented.
I am attaching a patch to make these changes. Only the first change is a
real bug, the others are more a matter of opinion.
