[Bug 457] Instead of using ../package-build dir, use an obj dir of some sorts in the main dir (ie: glibc-2.3.1/obj) to build in.

------- Additional Comments From jbrown at kmts.ca  2003-01-16 22:33 -------
I think I started this discussion and after have done so I actually came across
a problem in glibc or gcc that was caused by this (first time this happend). so
after thinking about some of the other comments made on that thread I think the
best soluton was to use a directory called build-<package name> rather than
<package name>-build.

this solves the problem of using the version number in the build command in my
own scripts ie. it becomes possible to use ../glibc*/configure since
../glibc-build no longer is present.  Unfortunately using a wildcard in a
command might not be desirable for use in the book.

That being said I still like build-<package name> <package name>-build since
