packaging: Build manpage in separate directory to other documentation

Matthew Pickering requested to merge wip/manpage-dir into master

We were installing two copies of the manpage:

  • One useless one in the share/doc folder, because we copy the doc/ folder into share/
  • The one we deliberately installed into share/man etc

The solution is to build the manpage into the manpage directory when building the bindist, and then just install it separately.

Fixes #23707 (closed)
