Review Request: 8005855: build-infra: Remove -R flag when cross compiling

I need more info on this, what is X_LIBS for, and why remove ALL -R options.

I always considered the -R options to be LD options, not library specifications really.
The -L and -l options are library specifications, but -R is just a path that gets baked into the .so
for runtime access to the libraries, the paths don't have to exist at build time.
