  Modified files:
    usr.bin/ar           ar.1 ar.c ar.h write.c 
  GNU ar did NOT implment option -q as a synonym of -r as the manual
  page stated, thus BSD ar(1) option -q, which was implemented based on
  the GNU ar manual page, turns out to be incompatible with GNU ar -q.
  This change will make BSD ar(1) -q a *REAL* GNU ar -q:
  1. It will update symbol table. (same as unfixed version)
  2. It will NOT compare new members spcified in the command line args
     with existing members, instead, append them directly.
