[Buildroot] [PATCH 1/1] toolchain-external-custom: allow specifying relative path to binaries

There are cases where a downloaded toolchain doesn't have its binaries
placed directly in a "bin" subfolder (where BuildRoot currently looks
for them).

A common example is the official Raspberry Pi Toolchain
(https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools), which has its binaries in
"arm-bcm2708/arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin".

This commit introduces BR2_TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL_BIN_PATH that defaults
to "bin" and can be changed as needed.
