[PATCH] docs: Fix installation of man pages with Sphinx 4.x

Posted by Damien Goutte-Gattat via 2 weeks ago
The 4.x branch of Sphinx introduces a breaking change, as generated man
pages are now written to subdirectories corresponding to the manual
section they belong to. This results in `make install` erroring out when
attempting to install the man pages, because they are not where it
expects to find them.

This patch restores the behavior of Sphinx 3.x regarding man pages.
