I only noticed that the prefix $(STAGING_DIR_HOST) is missing for these 
tools on x86_64 image Makefile.
If I look for this prefix in OpenWrt, it is found in some image 
Makefiles commands.

For examples:

If this is in the PATH through this line  
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/blob/master/Makefile, then this is 
not needed for the others?

I only wanted to unify this with the change and make it clear that the 
tool from staging is used here.
