Mike Small 308f5650e1 Fix portability problems going to OpenBSD
The earlier Makefile assumed GNU tooling in the following ways:

1. install having a -t target directory argument.
2. make having an internal rule to make a target based only on...
   ansi2text: ansi2text.o
3. man pages go to /usr/local/share/man, which is not the location
   on OpenBSD

Made a note about installation, pointing out the use of the MANDIR
variable to correct the man page destination.

Added an uninstall target.

A program to strip ansi codes from text files

I found this in NetBSD Problem Report #48092, a change request from
Nathanial Sloss where he included its source. See
netbsd_gnat_change_request.origin which was saved from


sudo make install

Note: on some systems you may want to set MANDIR, e.g. ...

sudo make install MANDIR=/usr/local/man

The default is to put the man page under /usr/local/share/man.
See Makefile.
