Bug #34145 "embedded" man pages missing in source.tar.gz

Conflict between an optimization in "BUILD/compile-dist" (not to explicitly list all features)
and "configure.in" (to delete man pages specific to un-configured features).

As a consequence, the man pages for "embedded" are lacking in the source.tar.gz
and so are missing from the distribution.

Also, this makes the build of community RPMs fail.

How to repeat:
Just try it ...

Suggested fix:
Explicitly add "--with-embedded-server" back to "BUILD/compile-dist".

Pushed into the 5.1.23-rc release clone for a rebuild.

To be merged to the main tree and up when the release changes get merged back.

We never had a release with that bug (= without "embedded" man pages),
so IMO there is no need to document this.
