RFR: JDK-8154841: Let different Jib profiles have different default make targets

Currently all Jib profiles define the default make target configure arg 
to be "all". While this works ok for our current main profiles, it's a 
bit crude and will not work well when start introducing more specialized 
profiles. I have implemented a way of specifying the list of default 
make targets much like configure arguments are specified today, by 
adding a function that converts this new field on a profile into the 
corresponding configure arg.

To demonstrate the feature I have also disable building of docs on most 
profiles. The docs build is very platform independent and we are 
currently wasting quite a bit of time letting every build, both release 
and debug, build docs. With these changes, only linux-x64 builds docs by 
default. Note that this applies to distributed build scenarios, like 
JPRT and RE at Oracle. A developer wanting to build docs may still do so 
by typing "make docs".

While tweaking the docs build, I also corrected the dependencies that 
were recently introduced for the new open docs bundle. It seems I was 
sloppy with the review on that change.
