Description of the Change

This merge proposal is to fix an issue originally reported in

intltool-using applications are expected to honor the LINGUAS environment variable when configuring and building from source. For example, if LINGUAS="en ru", then only the English and Russian versions of translated messages, schemas, help files, man pages, etc. should be built.

For the most part, deja-dup's build system does honor LINGUAS. The exception is man page generation; if LINGUAS is set to a subset of languages available in po/LINGUAS, the build will simply fail during make install:

make[2]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/portage/app-backup/deja-dup-21.2-r1/work/deja-dup-21.2/man'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `ar/stamp', needed by `man'. Stop.

This branch fixes the problem with a patch to use the logic from intltool's to calculate the set of languages for which man pages should be built.
