iptables: install iptables-apply script and manpage
We have the iptables-apply script in the tree (and in the release tarball), but is not being installed anywhere. Same for the manpage. Arturo says: I'm not a strong supporter of this script, but there are many users of it, so better do things right and do a proper installation. This patch is forwarded from the iptables Debian package, where it has been around for many years now. Signed-off-by: Laurence J.
