Description
In describing how to unpack the binary plug for the OpenJDK it simply says: 

	you must first download and install one or more of the following 
	files from which the build process will copy over "binary plugs" 

It would be clearer to explicitly say to run

	java -jar ...

On the download.
The above text is copied from

http://download.java.net/openjdk/40ec4ed263a6dfce13b8cf18fa046058/jdk7/

This page is linked from openjdk.java.net .. the bundles link in the navbar area.
I'm sure the page is autogenerated during the staging process.

The README-builds.html has the same statement.  It should be updated to say
whatever the download page says.

I will update the README-builds.html file, but the webpages are separate.

Once the need for the binaryplugs is removed, we can just delete all references to the binary plugs.
