Bug#414159: siege manpage var asg example inconsistent with actual usage in urls.txt

Package: siege
Version: 2.65-3
Severity: minor

The siege manpage has the example:

HOST = homer.whoohoo.com
which does not work in actuality with the urls.txt file due to the spaces surrounding
the equals (=) sign. Inclusion of spaces does not work for me while the absence does.

So, either the manpage needs to be changed to reflect the behavior or the parsing of 
the urls.txt file needs to be changed to handle spaces.
