package/patchelf: new host package
In some situations, users may want to tweak the dynamic section of the binaries (for example to add/set the RPATH to $ORIGIN/../lib). Because it is not trivial to do it properly from the Buildroot infrastructure, allow those users to use patchelf (e.g. from a post-build script) to tweak binaries. patchelf is able to: - modify an existing DT_RUNPATH tags - add a DT_RUNPATH tag if not already present - do the above to the DT_RPATH tag, too - set the path to the interpreter - remove DT_NEEDED tags - query a binary for the DT_RUNPATH/DT_RPATH tag, or for the interpreter path Does not really fix #7172, but this is an appropriate workaround.
