SVN 6.54 Shadow - Man-DB can format Korean and Chinese man pages (sed for disabling those manpages is irrelevant)

Excatly what it says in the title. The Shadow instructions include a
sed that disables installation of Korean and Chinese man pages (for
the apparent reason that Man-DB can't format them properly.) However,
according to the encoding tables for Man-DB, it now can format these
types of man pages.

So, that makes the sed for disabling the manpages pointless and it
should be removed.
