[Buildroot] [PATCH] package/berkeleydb: fix shared-only build

Changeset f1d3e09 (Build shared libraries only as the default) broke the
berkeleydb package.

For some reason, we had a very strange post-configure action in bdb:
        $(SED) 's/\.lo/.o/g' $(@D)/build_unix/Makefile

This means that it is using non-libtool object files. This breaks
building shared-only.

This code has been present almost the whole time we've had a berkeleydb
package, that is:
  - November 2003: use a sed expression instead of perl
  - March 2003   : use a perl program
  - August 2002  : introduce berkeleydb

Getting rid of this sed expression fixes the build, and allows building
the three new static/shared combinations: static only, shared only,
both static and shared.

Fixes numerous build failures:
