man: Drop separate paplay man page, move info to pacat man page

see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68135

pacat and paplay man pages both claim to describe the paplay program
(which is actually a symlink to pacat) -- this is inconsistent and
redundant, so drop the paplay man page

a follow-up patch will add man page symlink for all programs
implemented by pacat, not just paplay
