[Buildroot] [PATCH 3/4] Makefile: help: add package-specific targets

The documentation of the package-specific targets is heavily inspired by
the earlier patch by Thomas Petazzoni [1], but the <pkg>-install*
targets were left out since they're not useful for the developer IMHO.

The *-menuconfig target's help text is moved to the package-specific
targets.

I wasn't sure about putting a condition on BR2_HAVE_DOT_CONFIG around
the package-specific targets. Obviously they only make sense when you
do have a configuration, but I don't see why we would change the help
text based on that.
