Patch to add missing information to dma man page

The dma man page (/usr/src/contrib/dma/dma.8) does not contain critical information that is needed in order to get dma to connect to a remote MTA.  It took me several days of reading the dma source to figure out how to make it work.  I am attaching a patch to the man page to provide this information.

dma is in contrib/ which means it has upstream other than FreeBSD. I suggest you also send this patch to the upstream (DragonFlyBSD).

I sent a report to DragonFly, but not sure it will be received.  Their bug list requires membership, but the list is closed.  I sent it to one of the names listed.  It doesn't appear in their bug list and there is no activity since 28 Jun.
