After moved from Cygwin 1.5 to Cygwin 1.7, the '-' char in switch/option in
man page is not displayed.
As Cygwin 1.7 have revised to 1.7.5 and cygwin-doc-1.7 is released and this
problem still exists, so I decide to figure it out.
I have a previous post "Cygwin 1.7: Empty/white-space output when display
Chinese characters in GBK charset encoding?" here
It seems this problem is similar to that one, because if i set LANG=C.GBK,
'-' char will displayed well. But Cygwin 1.7 select UTF-8 as default
encoding, is it 'man' does not follow this default encoding?
