minor buglet in "cvs -H export"

User-agent: Mutt/1.3.28i

A collegue was confused when they couldn't "cvs export -r 1.1 file",
because the "cvs -H export" output says:
        -r rev  Export revision or tag.

Since a symbolic name is required for "export -r", I propose rewording
this text, perhaps as in the attached patch, to decrease confusion.

(For the specific instance of single-file "export", the collegue
was told to use "cvs update -p -r 1.1 file >exportfile", but the
misleading help text is still a bug.)
