(help-xref-symbol-regexp): Treat newlines as whitespace.

(help-make-xrefs): Only make cross-references for faces if preceded or
followed by the word `face'.  Do not make a cross-reference for
variables without variable documentation, unless preceded by the word
`variable'.  Update doc string accordingly.
