[PATCH] Make the expansion of manref()() in ztexi.yo match its expansion in zman.yo.

The difference was mostly harmless in the common case "(see manref(foo)(42))",
which expanded to "(see man page foo(42))" under ztexi.yo, but in other
contexts the ztexi.yo expansion was was nonsensical; for example:

    "the BSD manref(echo)(1) command"

    "the string returned by the manref(getlogin)(3) system call"

    "advisory file locking (via the manref(fcntl)(2) system call)"

    "this is the exact opposite from manref(ls)(1),"

While there, copyedit some uses of manref()().

Regarding the mailcap change, the correct reference is mailcap(4) on
FreeBSD and mailcap(5) on Debian.  I didn't check other systems.
