Usually the build directory is the current directory you are in when invoking
configure or autogen.sh.

I looked at a few autogen.sh scripts, and they always use the current working
directory as the objdir.

However, there could be a higher level script which would create the
WebKitBuild directory, and launch autogen.sh or configure from there. But I'm
not sure this brings a lot of added value.

We could rather correct the build documentation to use this WebKitBuild
directory (once bug 16736 is fixed):

Instead of 

./autogen.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/directory 

There would be:

mkdir WebKitBuild
cd WebKitBuild
../autogen.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/directory
