The output of xdpyinfo on is not reliable on dpi.  My `X -probeonly'
reports `DPI set to (133, 150)', while xdpyinfo shows `75x75'.

So I decided for a minimal sanity check.  If the font path contains no
substring "100", but "75", only then "75" is used.  In all other cases,
"100" is used.  

The idea behind this is that the X server usually checks the font path
at startup, all non-suitable directories are removed from the font path


Moreover, I added 2 new options

-c --stdout : print processed input to stdout without a pager
-s --source : instead of processing the input, cat the source onto stdout
              (useful for reading the source code of man-pages)
