[Build-common-hackers] Bug#624663: cdbs: scons-vars.mk : "unfit" use of --directory=$(DEB_BUILDDIR)

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.93
Severity: minor

I understand setting DEB_BUILDDIR indicates
one wants built files to go in that directory.
However, scons --directory option does not do this :
  "This option  is  nearly equivalent  to  -f  directory/SConstruct,
  except  that  it will search for SConstruct, Sconstruct, or sconstruct in
  the  specified directory."

So the proper variable for --directory should be instead DEB_SRCDIR, since
this is where one expects the SConstruct file to be.

A way to tell scons to put built files in a given directory is with
the "variant_dir" option, for which i'll propose a patch later.
