binutils: Also add autoconf-native to DEPENDS
Commit 616354f13732d13c17434d5b60b166f691c25761 is insufficient because gnu-config-native's gnu-configize script uses perl modules from autoconf and hence doesn't work unless autoconf-native is staged (which it may not be if building from sstate). Ideally g-c-n would itself declare a dependency on autoconf-native but this is difficult to arrange without creating a dependency loop. autoconf-native already depends on gnu-config-native (because autoreconf invokes gnu-configize) and has a build dependency on m4-native, which in turn build-depends on g-c-n because it configizes itself by steam in do_configure and needs config.{guess,sub} to be available. Adding some sort of gnu-config-initial-native recipe would fix the latter problem, but this would be ugly because it would need special-casing in (at least) autotools.bbclass, and in any case this still wouldn't solve the problem of autoconf itself depending on g-c-n. So, the easiest solution to the problem at hand is to arrange for those few recipes that depend on g-c-n but not autoconf-native to gain that latter dependency as well.
