commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=4e2b7057c65f06426b7c9b37df8ee9a3d1e62fb9
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Currently, the manual uses the last modification date and time of
manual.txt in the generated manual.

This is confusing, especially for long-checked-out repositories where
the top-level manual.txt has not changed since the check out. Moreover,
the manual explicitly states 'generated on', which is confusing at best.

Use the current date and time instead.
