Re: bin/47701 (apropos doesn't work)

Synopsis: apropos doesn't work

I believe christos addressed all of these issues back in March of 2013.
Rather than "OLDMAN=yes", we have "APROPOS=-l", which takes care of both
the man -k case and direct invocation of apropos.  This mode:
1. searches only name and name_desc, prints name(section) - name_description
2. turns off escape formatting (can be forced on with -i)
3. turns off context printing (can be forced on with -c)

In addition, the default behavior even without -l is now to print all
results instead of just the first 10.

Also, it now only pipes to a pager if specifically requested.

Sanity has been restored.  OK to close?
