please add manpages again to wine-development.

You'll find a complete working patch in the masterUnifiedPackaging
branch at https://github.com/jre-wine/wine.
I'd be happy to adjust it in any way required. If you want a separate
patch just tell me.

add manpages

- New wineVERSION-doc package.
  Multi-Arch foreign to avoid conflicts.
- Install all manpages from upstream mandir (generic).
  This includes manpages for programs that are not installed to path,
  but in /usr/lib/*/wineVERSION/. But IMO even this way the manpages
  are of some use.
  They might be patched to show how to call the programs.
  Or the programs could be installed to path, which is a bit complicated
  (probably not desirable) in respect to multiarch.
- Add update-alternatives (hardcoded for the moment) for master
  This still needs a little manual adaption for wine stable (still works
  Adding the manpages as slaves to wine would require the wineVERSION
  package to Pre-Depend on wineVERSION-doc.
  Breaks wine << 1.6.2-9 (assuming this is applied to the next release

- lintian overrides (binary and manpage in different packages).
- Fix more hyphen-used-as-minus-sign occurences.
- Move all READMEs to this package?

I'll work a bit more on this the next days and notify you here, when I'm
done. Just give me your thoughts.
