gitweb: Add gitweb(1) manpage for gitweb itself
Most of what is in gitweb.txt it has been pulled directly from the README and INSTALL files of gitweb. Current version is somewhat based on structure of SVN::Web manpage (one of web interfaces for Subversion). gitweb.conf(5) i.e. gitweb configuration manpage now refers to appropriate sections in gitweb(1). gitweb/README now refers to gitweb/INSTALL and gitweb(1) manpage. gitweb/INSTALL now refers to gitweb.conf(5) and gitweb(1).
