[OE-core] [PATCH 2/3] glibc-locale: Fix build error with PACKAGE_NO_GCONV = "1"

When the PACKAGE_NO_GCONV is set to 1 an empty directory is left behind from the do_install rule:

ERROR: glibc-locale-2.29-r0 do_package: QA Issue: glibc-locale: Files/directories were installed but not shipped in any package:
Please set FILES such that these items are packaged. Alternatively if they are unneeded, avoid installing them or delete them within do_install.
glibc-locale: 2 installed and not shipped files. [installed-vs-shipped]
ERROR: glibc-locale-2.29-r0 do_package: Fatal QA errors found, failing task.

The simple fix is to prune the empty directory.
