[Dev] build error on ath9k-htc-firmware

Hallo Taro,

I didnt look into this for some time. I guess(!) you used what fauno suggested:
> mkdir -p $srcdir/bin
> ln -s /usr/bin/xtensa-unknown-elf-as $srcdir/bin/as
> export PATH=$srcdir/bin:$PATH
I just tried that and also added
ln -s /usr/bin/xtensa-unknown-elf-objcopy $srcdir/bin/objcopy

the result looks exactly what you got. Well, it seems that the correct as (aka xtensa-unknown-elf-as) is used, but still it does not find xtensa-unknown-elf-objcopy. So here is the very ugly alternative approach:

# mv /usr/bin/objcopy /usr/bin/objcopy.away
# ln -s /usr/bin/xtensa-unknown-elf-objcopy /usr/bin/objcopy

then build the package with makepkg
when finished revert the ugly changes

# rm /usr/bin/objcopy
# mv /usr/bin/objcopy.away /usr/bin/objcopy

the same could be done to as and xtensa-unknown-elf-as, or use the approach posted by fauno.

hope it helps
best regards
