Is it really useful to be able to define the path to the build
directory? I believe we could do something simpler that consists in
just a boolean variable saying that the package does not accept
in-source build, like:


(which would default to YES)

and then the CMake package infra takes care of doing the build in some
$(@D)/buildroot-build/ directory, or something like that.
