- documentation/poky-ref-manual: Notes added for non-GPLv3 builds
[BUGID# 873] - Added a note in the Images Appendix indicating that building an image without GPLv3 components is only supported for base and minimal images. Also put the two changes you have to do to the local.conf file for the build. Added a note in the second chapter in the section on building images. The note indicates the same as in the appendix but does not go into the local.conf file detail.
