Hoi,

Add the -D flag, an alias to -d, which is used on other systems.

I object this one, since the -D flag has a different semantics e.g.
compared to the NetBSD version.

Just curious, why not just do a pass through clause? Like this:

diff r 34c9cb8fd38c usr.bin/xinstall/xinstall.c
--
a/usr.bin/xinstall/xinstall.c Tue Apr 18 22:11:35 2006 0000
++ b/usr.bin/xinstall/xinstall.c Fri May 26 15:40:29 2006 0200
@ -128,6 +128,9 @ main(int argc, char *argv)
case 'c':
/
For backwards compatibility. /
break;
case 'D': /*Intentional Pass through/
case 'd':
dodir = 1;
break;

All three of you are wrong :-)

You have to add 'D' to the getopt too, ho ho!
In anycase, I'll let Joerg make the commit.

This patch makes -D emit a warning and be ignored and documents that.

a cursory look only showed GNU supporting -D. netbsd uses it for something
different, other OS don't use it at all. I think we shouldn't commit it.
closing for now unless anybody feels we need to have it.
