[mkgmap-dev] Minor documentation patch

From Ticker Berkin ticker at jagIT.co.uk on Sat Jan 2 18:09:59 GMT 2021

Hi Mike & Gerd

I'd suggest something like:
 When this option is specified the land and sea polygons are derived
 from the given precompiled data rather than the natural=coastline ways
 from the input OSM files.

The coastline ways not removed or modified, leaving it up the style to
decide to render then as lines.

However --coastlinefile is different and doesn't pass them on
