I've fixed and committed. Though I have one concern below.

It's not currently supported in Buildroot, but LOADLIBES is extended by
the logrotate Makefile with -lacl or -lselinux when WITH_ACL or
WITH_SELINUX are used. I'm not sure this will play well with your
proposed solution.

But ok, this can be handled when/if someone adds ACL and/or SELinux
support to logrotate.
