Title:
  Trivial bug in man documentation: forgotten --strip-unneeded option in
  objcopy SYNOPSIS

Status in One Hundred Papercuts:
  Confirmed
Status in binutils package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  In the man page of "objcopy" the "--strip-unneeded" option:
  - is described in OPTIONS section;
  - but is forgotten in SYNOPSIS section (don't confuse with 
"--strip-unneeded-symbol=" and "--strip-unneeded-symbols=", which aren't 
forgotten).

  $ lsb_release -rd
  Description:    Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
  Release:        16.04

  $ apt-cache policy binutils
  binutils:
    Installed: 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.3
    Candidate: 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.3
    Version table:
   *** 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.3 500
          500 http://ua.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-updates/main amd64

       2.26-8ubuntu2 500
          500 http://ua.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 Packages

  I expected SYNOPSIS and OPTIONS sections of the man page of "objcopy"
  to be consistent.

  Option "--strip-unneeded" present in OPTIONS section, is absent in
  SYNOPSIS section.
