[issue2562] source install (with pip) does not install man pages

New submission from Camillo <camillo.lugaresi+hg at gmail.com>:

My favorite way of installing Mercurial on Mac OS X is using pip, which makes 
updating much more convenient than it is with the Mac binary package. The only 
thing that pip does not install are the man pages; that's because pip uses the 
setup.py script, while the man pages are installed only by the Makefile.

My request is that installation of the manpages be moved into setup.py. You 
can use the data_files argument of setup 
files) to install the man pages into /usr/local/share/man/man1 and man5.
