If you check the build.lunar file you will actually see that before
_configure is called run_build is executed that actually does "cd
$SOURCE_DIRECTORY" thus the current dir will already be in
$SOURCE_DIRECTORY. So your patch won't do a lot unless someone
intentionally does a "cd dir" in their BUILD file. But most people that
does that usually does a "cd $SOURCE_DIRECTORY" when done to restore the
current working directory.
Sofar please correct me if I'm wrong.
