 >    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
