[Buildroot] [RFC] First hack for external toolchain support based on sysroot

Hi,

This evening, I had a quick look at implementing support for external
toolchain based on --sysroot. It seems to work, see the included patch.
It's very hacky at the moment, I'm waiting for your suggestions to
improve the patch.

Sincerly,

Thomas

Another external toolchain support solution

 * In toolchain/external-toolchain/ext-tool.mk, copy the contents of
   the sysroot directory to the staging dir.

 * In package/Makefile.in, add a --sysroot CFLAGS pointing to the
   staging dir

 * Remove the CFLAGS and LDFLAGS definition from
   TARGET_CONFIGURE_OPTS. I haven't investigated exactly why, but with
   these options, DirectFB fails to build because it cannot find
   PTHREAD_RECURSIVE_MUTEX_INITIALIZER_NP, even if DirectFB's Makefile
   properly sets -D_GNU_SOURCE.
