Hi,

It's autotools best practise[1] to use the variables CC_FOR_BUILD etc when
building tools that are required to build the rest of the package.  A lot of
packages do this, and they all repeat the same variable assignements, so
consolidate these assignments in autotools.bbclass.

Not every instance of _FOR_BUILD has been removed from the metadata, as there
are several cases where the assignment isn't the same (added flags, mainly).

Tested with a world build of oe-core, zero buildhistory differences.
