Skip building R vignettes if Spark is not built

## What changes were proposed in this pull request?

When we build the docs separately we don't have the JAR files from the Spark 
build in
the same tree. As the SparkR vignettes need to launch a SparkContext to be 
built, we skip building them if JAR files don't exist

## How was this patch tested?

To test this we can run the following:
build/mvn -DskipTests -Psparkr clean
You should see a line `Skipping R vignettes as Spark JARs not found` at the end
