[Buildroot] [PATCH] evtest: disable documentation

evtest uses asciidoc to but /usr/bin/asciidoc will try to use
buildroot's host-python which doesn't have the required unicodedata. To
avoid that, define ASCIIDOC as an empty string so the Makefile can't
find the executable and skips the documentation generation.  This is the
same solution used in the evemu package. Otherwise it will fail with
this message:

make[1]: Entering directory `/br/output/build/evtest-1.32'
/usr/bin/make  all-am
make[2]: Entering directory `/br/output/build/evtest-1.32'
  File "/usr/bin/asciidoc", line 95
    except KeyError, k: return None
