Finally I could test this and found an issue. Because I use ccache, the 
linux/uboot kconfig steps fail, because ccache apparently is not part of 
Instead of conditionally adding it, my simple proposal would be to not 
use it, e.g.:

  # $(HOST_DIR)/lib/libncurses.so (which is not).  We don't actually
  # need any host-package for kconfig, so remove the HOSTCC/HOSTLDFLAGS
  # override again.

So after this, I'm not sure if there really was a need for above fix 
since the fixup/.config creation may not even need the only kconfig 
dependencies set so far: host-flex and host-bison..
