Patch for du -b

Adds a '-b' flag to the du(1) utility (in /usr.bin/du) for displaying the total
number of bytes in a file/directory, like the coreutils equivalent.

I'm doing this simply by separating out a curbytes value from curblocks, and
using that for operations when bflag is set.

I'm aware the wc(1) utility offers similar functionality with the '-c' flag,
but there are a few limitations that that solution carries (e.g. not being able
to count total bytes of entire directories recursively).

I've updated the manual page (along with adding the '-g' flag to places where
it was missing), and also created a new testcase for it.

(I have read UPDATING.)

Good evening ;)
