New Revision: 210297

  MFC r209738:
  Mention the radiolist option in the man page. It is being listed when
  dialog(1) is run without arguments and works as expected. Therefore,
  it should be part of the manual as well.
  Note: dialog(1) has not been updated for many years and is not actively
  maintained at the moment.
