  makeroot.sh: allow duplicate entries even with -f <filelist>

  makefs disallows duplicate entries unless the -D option is specified.

  Previously makeroot.sh enabled -D unless a filelist was provided via
  the -f options.  The filelist logic creates an mtree manifest from the
  METALOG and the provided filelist by passing them through `sort -u`,
  so duplicates were not expected.  However, duplicates can still occur
  when a directory appears in multiple packages -- for example,

  ./etc/pam.d type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
  ./etc/pam.d type=dir mode=0755 tags=package=runtime
  ./etc/pam.d type=dir mode=0755 tags=package=at
  ./etc/pam.d type=dir mode=0755 tags=package=ftp
  ./etc/pam.d type=dir mode=0755 tags=package=telnet

  For the purposes of makefs these directory entries are identical, but
  are of course not identical for sort -u.

  For now just leave the allow duplicates -D flag enabled.
