Summary: [PATCH Git] docs/curl.1: (OPTIONS): alphabetize and use GNU

Initial Comment:
** C.f
** As curl mailing lists are closed from outsiders, sending patch here.

Here is a small suggested update:

    * Follow style of GNU layout (cp, mv ...) where options are separated with comma: -o, --option
    * Order item alphabetically (by length also): -o, -O, --option
    * Follow style of GNU layout by moving help related options to the end: --help, -M, --version
