improve build -projecthelp as far as building jars and such

                 Key: LUCENE-3960
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: general/build
            Reporter: Robert Muir
             Fix For: 4.0

HossmanSays: "ant compile" in lucene src artifacts builds jars for some contribs not
  all -- kind of confusing.  I did a double take before i realized i
  needed "build-contrib" to get them all and the ones i was seeing were just
  because of cross-contrb dependencies.

Basically the ant -p is confusing in general. The 'default' task is actually 'jar-core',
which makes jars, but it has no description (doesnt show up in project help), and neither
does 'jar' (which maps to jar-core).

solr/build.xml does a much better job about this. The ant -p seems more userfriendly
and its obvious what targets do what. For lucene its not.

Also solr/build.xml defines 'ant compile' (lucene's doesnt, it maps to compile-core, which
then behaves differently than solr for people used to typing it).

Basically I think the best solution is to try to make these two build.xml's targets 
as consistent as possible.
