patch file

I am updating from an older version of buildroot to the latest.  I find it
useful to override the value of DL_DIR for certain packages, to sequester the
downloaded package in a different area than all the other third party packages.
 However, I found that the [relatively] recent introduction of
"$(2)_EXTRACT_CMDS" in package/Makefile.package.in broke this, because the
definition is using $(DL_DIR) instead of $$(DL_DIR) like in other templates in
the file.  So I would like to add the extra $.  Don't think that should be too

Patch file is attached.
