The project files for auto update contain several variables that are SED search and replaced during build.  The output directory is not handled properly since it uses the OUTPUTDIR variable, then a hard coded path down to the jusched/jucheck obj directory.  Since that object directory can change depending on the build type, the output directory in the project file should use the OBJDIR variable instead of OUTPUTDIR.

SUGGESTED FIX Change output directory to use OBJDIR variable instead of OUTPUTDIR

EVALUATION This became an issue when the makefiles were changed to build auto update using the devenv tool. This is therefore a follow-up fix to 6874519
