[webkit-dev] Order of determining $baseProductDir

Symbian seems to be the only other platform to do this.  None of the other platforms have system defaults.

The issue here is actually outside of Xcode.  Inside Xcode, the system path can be overwritten on a per project basis.  Outside of Xcode (make or WebKitTools/Scripts), there doesn't seem to be a way of overwriting the Xcode system path.  Making ${WEBKITOUTPUTDIR} take precedence would make this possible.

It seems that the environment specific variable should always be used if available, and if that is not set, fall back to the system default.  What do other people think?
