When the build fails due to something wrong in binman it is sometimes
useful to get a full backtrace showing the location of the failure. Add
a BINMAN_DEBUG environment variable to support this along with some
documentation.

 the DTC environment variable. This can be useful when the system dtc is too
 old.
 
+To enable a full backtrace and other debugging features in binman, pass
+BINMAN_DEBUG=1 to your build:
