syslinux: fix reinstall error
Fixed: make: *** No rule to make target `/path/to/sysroot/4.9.0/include/stdarg.h', needed by `cpio.o'. Stop. make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs.... ERROR: oe_runmake failed This happens when upgrade gcc from 4.9.0 to 4.9.1, and the .cpio.o.d isn't regenerated when recompile (the compile happens when do_install), the content of it are: [snip] cpio.o: /path/to/sysroot/4.9.0/include/stdarg.h [snip] And Makefile includes the .cpio.o.d file if it exists, so there would be errors when /path/to/sysroot/4.9.0/include/stdarg.h doesn't exist. Remove .*.d (a few .d files, its Makefile uses this wildcard) will fix the problem.
