[Buildroot] Problem building usbutils

Finally got it to work. But I really don't understand why this was

In ext-tool.mk I changed the following

-	for FILE in `find $${LIB_DIR} -maxdepth 1 -type l -name
"$${LIB}*"`; do \ 
+	for FILE in `find $${LIB_DIR}/ -maxdepth 1 -type l -name
"$${LIB}*"`; do \ 

I have no idea why adding the extra / fixed the problem but at least it

Yes, fixed in trunk.

Strange, it builds here (i386).

Could you provide more details, please?
