Nobody wiped out any MAN page.

Took me more than 1/2h to identify the problem. Since the MAN
pages are derived from the HTML pages, check first, if the HTML
page is ok. Otherwise there won't be a MAN page.

I have now:
- modified the concept of generating HTML pages in a temporary
  session ("fake session" which is in fact a true session now)
- fixed the GDAL installation on grass.itc.it
- generated a new GRASS 5.7 Linux binary snapshot (no more OGDI
- above fixed the broken online HTML manual pages as well

Keep in mind that 5.7 is EXPERIMENTAL.
Otherwise wait for 6.0.
