[Buildroot] Bug building fontconfig

Building fontconfig crashes with the following problem on Ubuntu 8.04/8.10.

/usr/bin/gcc -L/buildroot/build_i686/staging_dir/lib 
--sysroot=/buildroot/build_i686/staging_dir/ -o fc-case fc-case.o
/usr/bin/ld: this linker was not configured to use sysroots
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Removing the --sysroot and building by hand allows the file to link. I 
cant seem to find where this is being added to the cflags/ldflags. Any 
help would be appreciated. It continues to happen whenever linking using 
the host linker.
