The GPLv2 coreutils recipe has PACKAGECONFIG support for acl, however

I have the same problem. There's no QA waring aflter droping the PACKAGECONFIG.
I think the QA warning will only be seen if acl PACKAGECONFIG is
disabled but coreutils builds with acl support enabled (because it's
configure script finds acl headers in sysroot).

Steps to reproduce the issue are something like:

- Blacklist GPLv3 packages (ie force coreutils 6.9 to be used)
- Remove acl from DISTRO_FEATURES
- Build acl (or build some other recipe which depends on acl)
- Build coreutils

I think the fix is going to require patching coreutils so that it
respects --disable-acl, but I'm not sure how best to do that.

I saw the commit message(8030fdc198c1037ae458899eebd14a4fae04c49a) and don'k
know what the "CQID: 430353" means. Is this a number of bugzilla?
CQID is a reference to Wind River's bug tracking system. Not publicly
accessible, AFAIK.
