Copying output/host/usr/bin alone doesn't make any sense because
you're moving the compiler and other tools but not the sysroot. Copying
the entire output/host directory elsewhere would make more sense, but
unfortunately, Buildroot doesn't support a relocatable sysroot for now.
So you should *not* move this directory.
