[Buildroot] [PATCH next v5 6/9] package/pkg-generic: adjust config scripts tweaks for per-package folders

This commit adjusts the logic in pkg-generic.mk that tweaks the
*-config shell scripts installed by various libraries to make it
compatible with per-package folders.

This requires two fixes:

 - replacing $(STAGING_DIR) with a relative path from the config script
   to the staging directory, rather than using an absolute path of the
   staging directory.

   Without this, a *-config script provided by package A, but called
   from package B per-package folder will return paths from package A
   per-package folder:

   $ ./output/per-package/mcrypt/host/usr/<tuple>/sysroot/usr/bin/libmcrypt-config --libs
   -L..../output/per-package/libmcrypt/host/usr/<tuple>/sysroot/usr/lib/

   The libmcrypt-config script is installed by the libmcrypt package,
   and mcrypt is a package that depends on libmcrypt. When we call the
   libmcrypt-config script from the mcrypt per-package folder, it
   returns a -L flag that points to the libmcrypt per-package folder.

   One might say: but this is OK, since the sysroot of the libmcrypt
   per-package folder also contains the libmcrypt library. This is
   true, but we encounter a more subtle issue: because -L paths are
   considered before standard paths, ld ends up finding libc.so in the
   libmcrypt per-package folder. This libc.so file is a linker script
   that looks like this:

   GROUP ( /lib/libc.so.6 /usr/lib/libc_nonshared.a  AS_NEEDED ( /lib/ld-linux.so.3 ) )

   Normally, thanks to ld sysroot awareness, /lib/libc.so.6 in this
   script is re-interpreted according to the sysroot. But in this
   case, the library is *outside* the compiler sysroot. Remember: we
   are using the compiler/linker from the "mcrypt" per-package folder,
   but we found "libc.so.6" in the "libmcrypt" per-package folder.

   This causes the linker to really use the /lib/libc.so.6 from the
   host machine, obvisouly leading to a build failure such as:

   output/per-package/libgcrypt/host/opt/ext-toolchain/bin/../lib/gcc/nios2-linux-gnu/7.3.1/../../../../nios2-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find /lib/libc.so.6
   output/per-package/libgcrypt/host/opt/ext-toolchain/bin/../lib/gcc/nios2-linux-gnu/7.3.1/../../../../nios2-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find /usr/lib/libc_nonshared.a
   output/per-package/libgcrypt/host/opt/ext-toolchain/bin/../lib/gcc/nios2-linux-gnu/7.3.1/../../../../nios2-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find /lib/ld-linux-nios2.so.1

 - Some *-config scripts, such as the apr-1-config script, contain
   references to host tools:

   CC=".../output/per-package/apr/hosr/bin/arm-linux-gcc"
   CCP=".../output/per-package/apr/hosr/bin/arm-linux-cpp"

   We also want to replace those with proper relative paths. To
   achieve this, we need to also replace $(HOST_DIR) with a relative
   path. Since $(STAGING_DIR) is inside $(HOST_DIR), the first
   replacement of $(STAGING_DIR) by @STAGING_DIR@ is no longer needed:
   replacing $(HOST_DIR) by @HOST_DIR@ is sufficient. We still need to
   replace @STAGING_DIR@ by the proper path though, as we introduce
   @STAGING_DIR@ references in exec_prefix and prefix variables, as
   well as -I and -L flags.
