The order of flags in the mbrlabel(8) manpage is incorrect, as they are not in
alphanumerical order.

(Background: both the current order and wording of the `-r' and `-w' flags were
committed in revision 1.13 as suggested in PR bin/13503; i don't believe
reversing the order of the two, as has happened then in comparison to
revision 1.12, was done on purpose with the ease of reading in mind.

The `-s' flag was added in revision 1.15, probably simply being put after `-r'.)
"man 8 mbrlabel".
