Patch to fix unrecognises switch

classes/autotools.bbclass uses the -t switch on cp.  Unfortunately this is not
recognises on older Linux installations, for example Red Hat Enterprise Linux
version 4 does not recognise this switch.  The attached patch replaces this
with the equivalent --target-directory switch (though I have to confess I fail
to see what's wrong with putting the target directory at the end of the
argument list!)
