[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH 3/6] tools: Fix unintended lib link in $(STAGING_DIR_HOST)/lib

Currently, if the $(STAGING_DIR_HOST)/lib64 link already exists, ln (in
tools/prepare) will interpret $(STAGING_DIR_HOST)/lib64 as a directory
rather than a link name.

The result is a symbolic link named "lib" inside
$(STAGING_DIR_HOST)/lib, pointing to itself.

This adds the -n option to ln so that $(STAGING_DIR_HOST)/lib64 is
treated as a link name.
