and that's a stray and from a squashed commit I didn't notice.

I checked the Linaro ARM 2018.05 toolchain, similar problem, but worse.

pythondir = '/home/tcwg-buildslave/workspace/tcwg-make-
libdir = '/home/tcwg-buildslave/workspace/tcwg-make-

Path isn't correct at all.  At least the ARM toolchain is ok until
buildroot moves some files around.

I was able to modify my sed script a bit so that it works on this
toolchain too.  The two variables I added in the patch have different
values for this toolchain of course.  That's why I put them there. 
What would be the place to put in a common hook like this?
