Manpages lack encoding specification

To be able to use mandb with manual pages in unicode there must
be a line
'\" -*- coding: UTF-8 -*-
This is absent from the varnish-3.0.2 manpages, which makes their
verbatim Unicode characters look garbled on some systems because
ISO-8859-1 or something in that ballpark is assumed by the man system.
It is a regression, as in earlier varnish manpages, other means to
produce Unicode were used, e.g.
.Dq pq localhost
