[Buildroot] libtool

A lot of the packages output an information message, requesting that
$ libtool --finish /usr/lib
should be run to finish the installation of the package.

"PATH=\"\$PATH:/sbin\" ldconfig -n $libdir"

Inside the libtool script, there is a call to ldconfig 
which will by default write its result to files in the host /etc directory.

You can supply parameters to ldconfig telling it to store
the result in another directory (I.E:   $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/bin)
but I do not see that happening.

$ libtool --finish /usr/lib
really neccessary?

If so, it seems broken...
