Updated version of the patch that uses the simpler `install -t' variant to install the manpage.

@estan: Thanks for your contribution.

May I ask you to post the patch (or rather a git formatted one, so we get the authorship correctly) to arch-projects@archlinux.org (you'll have to sign up first)? That way it can be looked at by everyone involved.

It looks fine to me, maybe drop the copyright line, as legally speaking there is no such thing as "Arch Linux", and if there was, we would probably not be doing copyright assignment. It has been our policy so far to not show any copyright information to the end user (it is all in git log).

@Tom: will do. yea the copyright was just something i copy-pasted from another arch manpage i found. didn't know what the arch policy here was.
