This change makes your br2-external tree incompatible with Buildroot
+=== Migrating to 2017.08
+Before Buildroot 2017.08, host packages were installed in +$(HOST_DIR)/usr+
+(with e.g. the autotools' +--prefix=$(HOST_DIR)/usr+). With Buildroot
+2017.08, they are now installed directly in +$(HOST_DIR)+.
+Whenever a package installs an executable that is linked with a library
+in +$(HOST_DIR)/lib+, it must have an RPATH pointing to that directory.
+An RPATH pointing to +$(HOST_DIR)/usr/lib+ is no longer accepted.
