In libusb/libusb.mk, try this change:

<     cp -dpf $(LIBUSB_DIR)/.libs/libusb*.so.* $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib
>     cp -dpf $(LIBUSB_DIR)/.libs/libusb*.so* $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib

notice ".so.*" ==> ".so*" -- this will allow libusb.so to exist, and
perhaps allow the build to continue.  Otherwise, if the libusb.a is
there, and not working, check the build path.

If this doesn't work, in private email, can you send your .config, or
provide a download URL?  I'm curious, and have some time in 16 hours.
