commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=a125d213b4809e02b68d1b636e86cc6f8bb307d8
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

The fltk build system has some logic that causes it to pass
-Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib when --libdir is not /usr/lib. However, in our
case, libdir is ${exec_prefix}/lib, and is not expanded to /usr/lib
before the rpath related test is done. Rather than fixing the fltk
build system, this commit works around the problem by explicitly
passing --libdir=/usr/lib.



and many other similar build failures that have been occuring since 1+
