Description
Jdk7 internal and external build README files need to be updated to include the lastest instructions on how to build OpenJDK.

Latest change: ALT_BUILD_JDK_IMPORT_PATH and ALT_BUILD_BINARY_PLUGS_PATH vars were introduced instead of old ALT_CLOSED_BUILD_PATH, ALT_CLOSED_LIB_DIR vars (see cr 6591759).

However, Jdk7 build README instructions have not been updated.

- src/closed/share/doc/build/README-internal.html
OpenJDK section still talks about setting of old ALT_CLOSED_BUILD_PATH, ALT_CLOSED_LIB_DIR vars that do not exist anymore.

- src/closed/share/doc/build/README-builds.html
The new var ALT_BUILD_BINARY_PLUGS_PATH should be described somewhere in this doc.
Found a few minor issues in build README document (FIXME sections and a few typos):
