package/boost: fix RISC-V musl endian detection
The recent addition of a RISC-V musl toolchain uncovered an issue in Boost's endianness detection. Boost endianness detection only works for C libraries that pretend to be glibc *or* if the architecture is explicitly handled by Boost endian.h header. Neither were true for RISC-V musl, so we slightly patch boost to fix this problem.

+Add RISC-V endian detection
+boost/predef/other/endian.h has two ways of detecting the endianess:
+ (1) It includes <endian.h> if BOOST_LIB_C_GNU is defined, and then
+ use __BYTE_ORDER to decide the endianness.
+ (2) Otherwise, if (1) was not possible for some reason, it uses
+ architecture defines to decide the endianness.
+(1) works perfectly fine with glibc toolchains, because
+BOOST_LIB_C_GNU is defined, but it doesn't work with musl. Due to
+this, <endian.h> is not included, __BYTE_ORDER is not defined, and
+method (1) does not work, causing build failures on musl toolchains
+that don't have explicit handling by architecture name (method 2).
+So this commit fixes RISC-V musl build by adding support for the
+__riscv architecture define, to determine that the endianness is
+little endian.
