manpages: more fixes to minuses, hyphens, dashes
Debian still carries patches patches to the iptables nroff code touching ASCII minuses, so I thought, what's it this time. Eventually, this patch tries to straighten things once more, per and . Titles will get the em dash; all typed commands or parameters with a hyphen get a minus (so that man(1) hyperlinking and copy-pasting does work), but other mentions get the hyphen.
