core: introduce "sdk" target to make a relocatable SDK

We use a separate make target to build a relocatable SDK. We first
sanitize the RPATH in host tree. Next we also sanitize the
staging tree. Therefore "sdk" must depend on world.

Sanitizing staging is not really needed, in the sense that any rpath
in there is simply not going to be used. We want to sanitize staging
for the following reasons:

- To avoid leaking references to the original output directory. This
  way, we can validate that the SDK is relocatable by running a simple
  "grep -r ${BASE_DIR} ${HOST_DIR}". Obviously RPATH sanitization is
  not sufficient (e.g. also the references to source files have to be
  stripped), but it's a step in the right direction. This reason is
  obviously only relevant for the SDK.

- To make sure that when an executable is copied to target that it
  actually executes correctly. Since within Buildroot we never copy
  stuff from staging to target, this is clearly only relevant for
  the SDK.

Finally we install the script "" into the top directory
of the SDK (HOST_DIR) and the SDK location path is stored in the file
