[Archivesspace_Users_Group] build_release and custom config

With the v1.2.0 release, I finally got tired of saving and merging config.rb, 
local plugins, and mysql connector to upgrade on several test servers. 
I tried adding my changes to common/config/config.rb — the changes worked when running devserver
from the distribution, but they didn’t get exported into the distribution zip file
after running build_release.  

It appears that all of that is intentional — the dist target is intended to build the
standard distribution, not a custom one. ( i.e. it does not include local plugins, and it
specifically excludes the mysql connector if it is present. ) 

I made the following changes to the build-zip target to include local-plugins, mysql connector
and common/config/config.rb is they are present. Then copied them to build/mybuild.xml where
it can be run by:

./build/run -buildfile mybuild.xml dist -Dversion=“v1.2.0+local” 


Assuming you’re using mysql and there isn’t a local demo database to be migrated,
you can just unzip, run migrate_db and restart and it will rebuild the solr indexes.
