What "manpage" are you reporting?  In py3k branch,

$ groff -Tascii -man Misc/python.man

              If this is set before running the interpreter, it overrides  the
              encoding  used  for stdin/stdout/stderr, in the syntax encoding-
              name:errorhandler The errorhandler part is optional and has  the
              same meaning as in str.encode. For stderr, the errorhandler
               part is ignored; the handler will always be 'backslashreplace'.

There is a missing period after the first sentence, but otherwise LGTM.

It is also documented in the reST manual and python -h help,
