Overriding PAGER might make sense, but I'd be quite annoyed if Git
decided to override MANPAGER without providing some way to override it.

If a user sets MANPAGER then it's because they want a specific pager
when reading man pages - invoking man through "git help" shouldn't cause
it to behave differently in this case.
