Update macOS documentation primer quickstart

I recently followed the instructions to set up the FreeBSD documentation
repository and build tools on my MacBook. Some of the instructions don't seem
to work correctly due to Homebrew paths. Specifically:

- The instruction for setting up the gem path doesn't work with the current
homebrew setup and can be made less brittle by querying "gem environment
- The LOCALBASE parameter used with bmake is incorrect for a ruby installed
with homebrew
