        man/man1       : apropos.man1 whatis.man1 
        src            : whatis.c 

Log message:
        Add an option to apropos and whatis to allow specification of a
        section to search.
        * src/whatis.c (args, long_options, main): New -s/--section option.
        (usage): Document it.
        (whatis): Tell dblookup_all() to look in the section named by
        --section, if present.
        (apropos): If --section was given, check that it matches either
        info.sec or info.ext for each page. Use info.whatis rather than
        parsing the whatis out manually.
        * man/man1/apropos.man1 (SYNOPSIS, OPTIONS): Document --section.
        * man/man1/whatis.man1 (SYNOPSIS, OPTIONS): Likewise.
        * docs/NEWS: Start 2.4.3. Document the above.
