Corrective patch

The strfile(8) and unstr(8) man pages have content errors:

1) they reference a strfile.dat default output file that is never created (the
default is to append a .dat extension to the provided source_file)

2) they mention a 4.4BSD origin, whereas these commands appeared in 2.9BSD (see
https://minnie.tuhs.org/cgi-bin/utree.pl?file=2.9BSD/usr/src/games/fortune/strfile.c
)

Here's a patchfile to correct these errors, and bring 2 additional precisions.
