Tweak the description of -l:

Avoid the misunderstanding that the essential purpose of -l is
similar to the purpose of the -a option in mandoc(1), which is not
the point: the fact that -l implies -a is merely a minor detail.
The point of -l is to make man(1) behave like mandoc(1).
Move the mention of -a to the end to de-emphasize it.

Nate Bargmann reported that this seriously confused him,
and i can see why.
