Fix mishandling of suffix matches in manpath

Fixes Savannah bug #60906.

* src/manp.c (pathappend): strstr might return matches that are not at
the start of a manpath element, resulting in incorrect truncation. Skip
any such matches.

Handle \[en] escapes in NAME section

Fixes Debian bug #970122.

* src/lexgrog.l (MAN_NAME): Treat "\[en]" (and similar) as another
synonym for "\-", and thus as a separator. (This spelling is
groff-specific; the older "\(en" spelling was already accepted.)
* NEWS: Document this.

* lib/orderfiles.c (order_files): Avoid accessing an element of a
zero-length array.

Allow clock_gettime64; return ENOSYS so libcs can engage fallbacks

libcs such as musl expect ENOSYS to be returned (not EPERM) in their
fallback code, so change the seccomp filter to be more agreeable to
them.

At the same time, clock_gettime is permitted in the filter, so permit
clock_gettime64 as well -- it will be needed by 2038 in any case.

* lib/sandbox.c (make_seccomp_filter): Set default action to
SCMP_ACT_ERRNO (ENOSYS). Allow clock_gettime64.
* NEWS: Document this.

Remove "Type" column from DB table in mandb(8)

The database types table in mandb(8) has always been a bit
dubiously-placed; it's really more about how man-db is configured, and
as such makes more sense in manual/db.me (which indeed has an extended
version of the same table). It causes particular problems in translated
versions of this page, where it's very easy for it to become too wide
and cause "make check" failures.

A proper fix for this would probably require updating existing
translations, but an easy improvement is to remove the "Type" column: it
has negligible relevance here, and removing it makes it much easier for
translated versions to stay within page width limits.

* man/man8/mandb.man8 (DATABASE CACHES): Remove "Type" column from
table.
