ar usage message needs updating for -q
ar's implementation actually doesn't generally support -a, -b, or -i when used with -q. The manual and source code make this clear; however, the -abi options still show up in the usage message. We should remove that.

This was tested through the additions to the ar test suite that were done in #14213. In particular tests were done that validate that -
-qi do not work. As part of the broader testing around #14105 again, Dominik Hassler kindly built all of the OmniOS base and extra packages with the new ar (how we originally discovered issues with #14105) and at least here we didn't notice any additional issues.
