You can use 'make -C build/whatever' to avoid having to change directory.
The odd one out here is configure, where you have to say
 (cd build/whatever && ../../configure ...)
I have occasionally wondered if we should add an equivalent to
make's -C option to configure, but AFAIX autoconf-configures don't
have it, so it would be an odd non-standardism.
