diff file for src.conf.5 and build.7

Please find included the patch to update these files as per conversation "Build Less?" on freebsd-arm mailing list on Sept 28 2015 with Warner Losh and John-Mark Gurney. 

Changes: update the build.7 man page to include the SRCCONF option, as well as clarify the scope of the src.conf file in man page src.conf.5. Clarified some language in build.7 around make directory navigation and build output destination.
