classes/waf: Fix builds when B != S
Waf requires that the current working directory be ${S} (the location of the wscript) when building. Most of the time, this was true only because B defaults to S. However, anything that changed that behavior (notably, using externalsrc) would break the recipe. Remedy this by explicitly changing cwd to ${S} when running waf commands. As a happy side effect, B can be set up for "out of tree" builds to keep the source directory clean.
