psql environment doc addition

I was looking the other day for a variable that turned out to be 
PGSSLMODE, but the psql docs didn't reveal it to me. I propose to add 
the following para to the psql docs to point to additional info on 
environment variables. I know it's in the SEE ALSO section, but that 
didn't jump out at me, especially on the man page that just says:

SEE ALSO
       Environment Variables (the documentation)


Any objections?

cheers

andrew
