A change for bc(1), no change for man

Pierre Abbat noticed that bc(1)‘s usage of GNU readline something that wasn’t GNU readline made it harder to use; Sascha Wildner changed it to use libedit.  Pierre’s other complaint, that BSD man page output stays on-screen when completed, is a positive feature.  Linux systems that clear man page output enrage me, because I expect to be able to take advantage of my scroll buffer.

    Or just set PAGER to less -X…
