package/xmlstarlet: fix host build
Provide the path to HOST_DIR for libxml, libxslt and libiconv like for the target variant to avoid a build issue on host where /bin is a symlink to /usr/bin. Indeed, the configure script use a custom m4 macro XSTAR_LIB_CHECK to find xml2-config: XSTAR_LIB_CHECK([LIBXML], [xml2-config]) This macro come from a local m4 file m4/xstar-check-libs.m4 where it use: AC_PATH_PROG(LIBXXX()_CONFIG, xxx_config(), [], [$LIBXXX()_PREFIX/bin$PATH_SEPARATOR$PATH] Since no prefix seems to be defined by $LIBXXX()_PREFIX, AC_PATH_PROG look by itself at /bin/ for xml2-config. So the PATH variable set by Buildroot containing HOST_DIR/bin is ignored. The wrong xml2-config is used during the build and the build fail when no xml2 headers are installed on the host.
