I renamed this macro:


and moved it outside of the inner-rebar-package macro, so that it is
declared together with the other macros in pkg-rebar.mk.

Also, an added benefit is that we can avoid the double escaping so $$$$
becomes just $$, and $$ becomes just $.

I've applied to next, but could you please send a follow-up patch that
documents this <pkg>_KEEP_DEPENDENCIES variable in the Buildroot
manual in the rebar package infrastructure section ?
