The `usage'-line of uuencode(1) does not match the `SYNOPSIS'
line of its manpage.

The naming of the manpage should probably be kept, since there
isn't really a `remotefile', as the `usage'-line calls it.
$ uuencode    
usage: uuencode [-m] [infile] remotefile
$ man -h 1 uuencode|head -n1
uuencode [-m] [file] name
Apply the following (proposed) patch:
