[Buildroot] iproute2 binaries getting linked against libelf, which is not available in target

I found an issue with buildroot 2020.02.x concerning iproute2 binaries
being linked against libelf.
According to iproute2.mk it should only link against libelf if
BR2_PACKAGE_ELFUTILS is selected.
But it also links against libelf without that option selected and thus
renders the created binaries unusable in the target system.
After digging further I found that this is due to the iproute2 configure
script detecting libelf being available in the used toolchain
(crosstool-ng companion library).
After finding out I can work around this issue.
I thought this might be a thing to be addressed in buildroot, but I'm not
sure how to approach it.
