[vlc-devel] [PATCH 2/3] contrib: Put the contrib in $host/$distro instead of just $host. This allows building for a same target with different distro type. (eg iPhone Simulator)

To build for the iPad, we need to have some host contrib (autoconf,
etc.) and then the target contrib. Then when trying to target the
simulator and the os, we need also separate contrib. I may be
hijacking the contrib to do this here. And we could figure out a
simpler/more solid way to solve this.

This works only with prebuild binary package for now. (ie, prebuild
darwin-x86_64 and iOS contrib), But, else this is the purpose of the
second patch.

Thanks for the review.
