classes/waf: Add build and install arguments
Adds variables that can be used to allow a recipe to pass extra arguments to `waf build` and `waf install`. In most cases, you want to pass the same arguments to `build` and `install` (since install is a superset of `build`), so by default setting EXTRA_OEWAF_BUILD also affects `waf install`, but this can be overridded.
