[Reportbug-maint] Bug#561799: reportbug.conf manual refers to (deprecated?) cc option

Package: reportbug
Version: 3.48
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

The reporbug.conf manual contains the follow section:
  cc (boolean)
    Whether the reporter should be Cc:ed on the bug report

When using this option (Setting 'cc yes') , on launching reportbug, it reports:
  Unrecognized token: yes

It looks to me as if this option has been removed, so this patch removes the
reference to it in the manual page.

* Remove reference to the 'cc' option in reportbug.conf's man page.
Hopefully the file syntax remains correct.
