The attached patch fixes the issue. Cause is that upstream has changed the location of the libebt*.so files from <libdir>/ebtables to <libdir>.
The fix is to add a parameter LIBDIR=/usr/lib/ebtables to the make command. This is also what Fedora does.

As a side note: when on a writable /usr file system, this fixes the issue until you reflash the device:

(cd /usr/lib ; ln -s ebtables/* .)
