[OE-core] [morty][PATCH v2 1/2] coreutils_6.9: Disable broken man pages

From: Richard Purdie <richard.purdie at linuxfoundation.org>

These are generated from --help output of the host tools which is clearly
incorrect, particularly given the older nature of this recipe. Simply
disable them entirely.

+Disable manpages for coreutils. These are generated by running the host version --help
+which is going to give incorrect results so its better simply not to do this at all.
