That's largely irrelevant, since your buildsystem (makefiles, autoconf, scons, cmake, etc)

for standard Makefiles: nothing, OE will do 'make all && make install' by default
for autoconf based Makefiles: 'inherit autoconf'
for scons based things: 'inherit scons'
for distutils based things: 'inherit distutils'
for qmake based things: 'inherit qmake'

You can, or you can set S to the checkout directory and do 'bitbake <my app> -c rebuild'

The (incomplete) user-manual[1] also contains a lot of information.
