[oe] BBCLASSEXTEND sdk vs. nativesdk

Hi all,

I noticed in my attempt to convert zlib to use BBCLASSEXTEND that 
sdk.bbclass has been deprecated, and that the new way is to use 
nativesdk.bbclass. This is confirmed by the fact that the Poky recipe 
for zlib uses:

BBCLASSEXTEND = "native nativesdk"

However, if I use this in the OE recipe, bitbake no longer knows how to 
build zlib-sdk. And zlib-sdk is listed in DEPENDS in a small handful of 

It seems to me the correct course of action is to use nativesdk in 
BBCLASSEXTEND and rename the dependencies on other recipes, yes?
