[Buildroot] How to bypass fix-rpath for a particular package?

Hi Bryce,

It appears that the symbols referencing the library names have been 
bitshifted.  At best, objdump -x gives correct references, ldd 
segfaults.  At worst, the objdump -x contains structured gibberish.  It 
doesn't happen on all files, though, but at this point I'm unable to 
discern a pattern.

I'm guessing that patchelf has a false positive, but I'm no expert in 
this area.  I'm not used to ldd segfaulting so I have only been learning 
this stuff since I discovered the behaviour.  It came as a complete 
surprise to me when I noticed the md5sum difference and grafted directly 
and it worked.
