[Buildroot] [PATCH for next 1/2] toolchain-external: improve lib subdirectory matching

From: Bai Yingjie <byj.tea at gmail.com>

The toolchain from the Cavium Networks Octeon SDK provides a sysroot
with library directories lib32, lib32-fp, lib64 and lib64-fp. The -fp
variants are used for processors with hardware floating point unit, such
as the Octeon III variants.

When specifying -march=octeon3 in BR2_TARGET_OPTIMIZATION, the toolchain
will use lib32-fp, but currently Buildroot does not accept that pattern.

This patch improves the matching by accepting lib(32|64)?([^/]*)? as lib
directory name.
