Documentation: use "spurious .sp" XSLT if DOCBOOK_SUPPRESS_SP is set
With this change, the "spurious .sp" suppression XSLT code is disabled by default. It can be enabled by defining DOCBOOK_SUPPRESS_SP. The "spurious .sp" XSLT fragment was used to work around a bug first released in docbook-xsl 1.69.1. Modern versions of docbook-xsl are negatively affected by the code (some empty lines are omitted from manpage output; see <>). The key revisions in the docbook SVN repo seem to be 5144 (before docbook-xsl 1.69.1) and 6359 (before docbook-xsl 1.71.1). Testing done with asciidoc 8.3.1 and docbook-xsl 1.74.0.
