Add man pages for gi-* tools

Simon McVittie requested to merge wip/smcv/gir-man-pages into main

Resolves: #3260 (closed)

Now based on !3928 (merged) because otherwise it would be factually incorrect.

  • Merge g-ir-compiler, g-ir-generate man pages from gobject-introspection (via git filter-repo, slightly rewriting one commit message to fix a GitLab issue reference)

  • Remove generated .1 files, keeping only .rst source

  • Rename man pages to the tools' GLib names

  • Add metadata header to gi-* man pages

  • Spell Matthias' name correctly in the gi-* man pages

    This was wrong since 2008.

  • Retitle gi-* man pages and update content

  • g-ir- tools: Add examples to man pages

  • Add gi-* man pages to the build system

  • Add a man page for gi-inspect-typelib
