Bug#309893: apt: [manual] Please add (1) page references to words referring to programs

Package: apt
Severity: minor

The manual page reads:


       apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may
       be consid- ered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the
       APT library.  Several "front-end" interfaces exist, such as
>>     dselect(8), aptitude, synaptic, gnome-apt and wajig.

Please change the last line, that contains references to programs to:

	dselect(8), aptitude(1), synaptic(8), gnome-apt(8) and wajig(8).

This is to help programs yo indetify which parts are programs whose
manual pages could be "jumped to". E.g Emacs M-x man command is able
to jump to pages marked like this (That is: run M-x man RET apt; followed
by presisng "m" in word that contains proper manual page reference)
