bugzilla-tool needs to invoke a specific build-webkit

Currently it uses the one in your path.  Which might be in a different webkit
repository, which means you'll end up buildnig the wrong copy of WebKit.  This
is what caused the bad checkins today. :(

It's also wrong to use the build-webkit in the path because not everyone will
have build-webkit in their path.

bugzilla-tool is cwd aware, it passes the cwd off to the SCM system and asks it
if its a valid SCM checkout and if so, what the root directory of the checkout
is.  bugzilla-tool assumes whatever root directory you're in is a WebKit
checkout.  This allows me to have multiple webkit checkouts and make
modifications to bugzilla-tool in one and test the modified version against
other checkouts.
