simplify man/Makefile.am

Description

Automake 1.11 NEWS says

These are the new semantics: if some man page is not present, and
help2man is not either, then `missing' will warn and generate the
replacement page containing the error message, but exit successfully.
However, `make dist' will ensure that no such bogus man pages are
packaged into a tarball.

which is exactly the semantics we want, so we can simplify man/makefile.am significantly (remove our Automake 1.10 workarounds).
