I couldn't remember what the new "mach build faster" was actually called, and "mach build help" does not mention it, or "mach build binaries".

Bug 1223149 - Add basic usage documentation for `mach build`; r?glandium

Support for displaying docstrings in `mach help` was added relatively
recently. `mach build` was never documented. Let's document it.

There are a gazillion things we could put in the documentation. For now,
mainly focus on targets.
