In the spirit of keeping a single patch for a single purpose, I have not 
modified anything that is not required to fix the problem at hand (um, 
except for bindir_cross). I have only modified the variable names that 
were modified in Richard's commit "Start removal of layout_* variables 
and replace these with new mechanisms to allow nextgen SDK generation 
(from Poky)":


Any renaming of base_prefix, exec_prefix, base_bindir, target_datadir, 
&c is a separate matter. Note that some of these names are imposed on us 
by Autotools convention. This is why these variables are in lower case 
in the first place:
