install discount manpages as symlinks

textproc/discount installs a number of broken manpages, such as:

[adamw@apnoea ~] man mkd_css
<standard input>:2: can't open `man3/mkd-functions.3': No such file or directory

The problem is that the Makefile is using the non-standard groff '.so' command to include another file, which doesn't behave the same for us.

The attached patch just creates the manpages as symlinks.

  A number of the discount manpages are broken due to FreeBSD's lack of support of
  the .so macro. I know that work has been done on this in base, but for now fix
  discount's manpages by installing them as symlinks instead.
