Since man pages are marked as %doc, you can use %_excludedocs

$ grep -B2 excludedoc /usr/lib/rpm/macros 
#	Boolean (i.e. 1 == "yes", 0 == "no") that controls whether files
#	marked as %doc should be installed.

And also:

$ grep -B3 install_langs /usr/lib/rpm/macros 
#	A colon separated list of desired locales to be installed;
#	"all" means install all locale specific files.
%_install_langs	all
