[man.el] perl's man pages use : as a word symbol

It is very common for perl man pages to have names similar to
`PDL::Primitive'. If you press Enter on such a name in Man mode then
man-follow will try to jump to either PDL or Primitive instead of
PDL::Primitive. I guess the easiest way to fix the problem is to set
syntax of `:' as a part of word:

      (modify-syntax-entry ?. "w" table)
      (modify-syntax-entry ?_ "w" table)
+     (modify-syntax-entry ?: "w" table)
    "Syntax table used in Man mode buffers.")
