Perhaps it's still interesting to show the warning but just not bail
out. This way these incorrect usage can be more easily found and fixed.
Something like:

/* -dmqr require a list of archive elements. */
if (options & (AR_D|AR_M|AR_Q|AR_R) && !*argv) {
	warnx("no archive members specified, continuing anyway");
