[Buildroot] [PATCH] skeleton: drop PAGER

There doesn't seem to be possible to track down the reason why the  profile
sets $PAGER other than that it has always been there.

However, it defeats pager autodetection by various tool (systemctl, nmcli,
etc.) that would otherwise prefer less to more, in case both were available.

Let's drop it. My desktop Linux distro (Fedora) doesn't seem to set it
either and the universe doesn't seem to have collapsed yet.
