Splitting up the 'mega' patches

Two mega patches remain in the book currently: Glibc and Man.

Glibc patch fixes these three things:
1) changes 'root' to '0'
2) changes $PERL and @PERL@ to /usr/bin/perl
3) libnss fix

I'll split this up in two patches:
1) the root + perl fix
2) the libnss fix

Man fixes:
1) comments out the "MANPATH /usr/man" line
2) adds -R to the PAGER variable
3) fixes the problem where it only formats up to 80 cols

I'll split this up in three patches
1) the MANPATH fix
2) the PAGER fix
3) the 80 cols fix

We could discuss combining the MANPATH + PAGER patch, but since they fix two 
unrelated things (whereas the root+perl patch fix compile stoppers) I feel 
it'll be best this way. I will start working on the new patches in a few 
minutes and upload them later and of course update CVS book accordingly.
