Cleaned up Build Variables sections

Everyone was referencing the x86 Build Variables section but now x86
has some unique variables. So created a common/vairables.xml from
the existing x86/variables.xml but removed parts that weren't common.

Now arm and mips both reference the common/variables.xml file and have
their unique parts.

16  set a few variables that will be dependent on your particular needs.
17  You will need to set the target triplet for the target architecture, the MIPS

19  you can use the table at the bottom of this page as a reference. Set
