[Buildroot] [PATCH next v2 1/2] package/apr-util: fix build with per-package folders

With per-package folder support enable, the build of apr-util fails,
for two reasons:

 - The rules.mk file is generated by the 'apr' package, and then
   copied into the 'apr-util' source directory. This is done by the
   'apr-util' build process. Unfortunately, this rules.mk file has a
   number of hardcoded paths: to the compiler and to the libtool

   Due to this, the compiler from the 'apr' per-package folder gets
   used. But this compiler uses the 'apr' package sysroot, which does
   not have all the dependencies of the 'apr-util' package, causing
   the build to fail because <expat.h> is not found.

 - Similarly, the libtool script itself has some hardcoded paths,
   which make it use the compiler/linker from the 'apr' per-package
   folder, so it does not find the expat library.

We fix both issues by doing the necessary replacement in both rules.mk
and libtool.

Changes since v1:
 - Drop the useless logic to copy the libtool script before doing the
   replacement: as noted by Yann E. Morin, sed is properly breaking
   hardlinks when doing an in-place replacement.
