[pacman-dev] [PATCH] Compress hard linked man pages

Hi all,

The attached patch fixes FS#5392 [1].  If hard links are present for a 
man page, all other hard linked files are removed, the man page is 
gzipped and the hard links are updated to the newly compressed man page.

I didn't deal with the comment the .bz2 files are not change because I 
felt that is unnecessary.  Also, do we even care if man pages have 
permission of 444 instead of 644 as mentioned in the final comment?

 From the comments in the bug report, the ownership of the traceroute 
man page should probably be dealt with in the iputils package and 
probably needs a separate bug report opened. 

This is the first patch I've submitted and I'm new to git so let me know 
if I've done something wrong...
