man1x/install.1x: Add explaination on flag ommission

I ommited conflicting flags, for example BSDs are using -B to set
the backup suffix, while on GNU -B is ignored and the flag is -S.
Which on BSDs is for controlling strip(1) options.

I also ommited the -D flag for now because the GNU manpage doesn't
really makes a lot of sense and has at least requirement on -t that
BSD and BusyBox don’t have.
