[tex-live] mendex.1 doesn't have an encoding tag

Please follow groff's `preconv' manpage to add a proper emacs-like
encoding tag to the `mendex.1' manpage and probably other non-ASCII or
non-UTF8 manpages of TeXLive, e.g.
.\" -*- mode: troff; coding: euc-jp -*-
as the first line in the document.
While this doesn't ensure proper formatting with a non-Japanese groff
version, it makes the man page readable with recent versions of groff
within a standard UTF-8 terminal, e.g.
groff -k -Tutf8 -mja -man mendex.1 | less
(`-k' activates auto-conversion of encodings, `-Tutf8' sets a UTF-8
terminal as the output device, `-mja' activates rudimentary Japanese
support, and `-man' loads the macros for manpage formatting.)
