Fix pciutils broken cross compiling

The pciutils migration to gentargets broke cross compiling.
First problem is the internal install always trying to strip stuff, that's
wrong since native install doesn't know how to strip foreign binaries and also
breaks debugging since it's not conditional.
Second problem is the library isn't being cross compiled either (HOST variable
never set so it assumes native).
A third problem is the library never being installed and if the binaries link
against it (which they always do) they fail to work properly (make install-lib

Also added a comment about pci.ids / pci.ids.gz not being installed this time
around and being needed in the skeleton for a nice verbose lspci output.
This will be addressed post-2010.05 release with new infrastructure to fetch
