A description of the "build.dir" & "configure.dir" keywords are missing

I only discovered these keywords by accident by looking in a Portfile
for help with exactly these issues : changing into a directory before a
python install

Possible description :
Changes into this directory before building. Default is ${worksrcpath}
Example :
    build.dir           ${worksrcpath}/${name}-apache

Possible description :
Changes into this directory before configuring. Default is ${worksrcpath}
Example :
    configure.dir           ${worksrcpath}/${name}-apache
