Julian, All,

As discussed on IRC, there is another solution to export BR2_EXTERNAL,
which is to add it to EXTRA_ENV, like so:

    br2-external: make it available to post-{build,image} scripts
    
    Currently, BR2_EXTERNAL is not always exported to sub-processes that we
    spawn, like post-build or post-image scripts. This all depends on how
    the user passes BR2_EXTERNAL; consider the following:
    
      - make BR2_EXTERNAL=/path/to/br2-ext
      - BR2_EXTERNAL=/path/to/br2-ext make
    
    In the first case, it is just a make variable, not an environment
    variable, and thus not exported, while in the second case it is an
    environment variable and gets exported to all sub-processes make may
    spawn.
    
    Explicitly export it using EXTRA_ENV.
