hmmm, this seems like a bad solution -- now we install these files
twice as separate copies, yet man(1) is capable of reading other
machine subdirs.  ie, the right answer would be to move them into
the x86/ subdir and make sure that i386 and amd64 both look there
by default as well.  (actually, i thought this already worked
properly, but it doesn't seem to.  the x86/ subdir already is
created by the build, but it is empty, and moving a man page in
there does not make it found.)

this change is OK for now, but we really should not be installing
the same files multiple times like this.
