IIRC, this has already been answered on the emacs-devel list.

The easiest way currently is to use `setenv' and set the environment
variable GROFF_NO_SGR to 1 (within Emacs) in case the man program
hasn't been configured already to not use SGR.  The proper way is to
make Emacs understand SGR escape sequences.
