[OE-core] [PATCH v4 10/13] devtool/standard: npm: update the append file

When creating a recipe using devtool, a workspace is created to store
the new recipe, the recipe source and some append files. These append
files are used by devtool to build the recipe using externalsrc (to use
the source which are in the workspace). They can also have some
additional actions according to the class of the recipe.

This commit updates the append file for the npm recipes. The
devtool / externalsrc files are removed in the npm package directory
instead of the install directory.
