No, don't just say that. It will cause the reader to wonder why we impose such
a restriction, and could be very annoying on systems where POSIXLY_CORRECT must
be set in order for other things to work properly. Instead, just say what
effect this has, e.g. "Note: the processing of option arguments is less
flexible if the environment variable "POSIXLY_CORRECT" is set."
