Motivation for this change

This installs the kio "man:" protocol handler, which fixes the UNIX manual
section in the KDE Help Center.

Note that kde currently parses "/etc/man.conf" manually, if $MANPATH is not
set, to build its man page index. (if https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=404022
is addressed, the "/etc/man.conf" symlink should not be necessary anymore)

Things done

Verified that KDE Help Center displays man pages locally on a 18.09 system.

  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nox --run "nox-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Assured whether relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.
