The RIOT community cares a lot about code quality.
Therefore, before describing what your contribution is about, we would like
you to make sure that your modifications are compliant with the RIOT
coding conventions, see https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/wiki/Coding-conventions.

### Contribution description
Put here the description of your contribution:
- describe which part(s) of RIOT is (are) involved
- if it's a bug fix, describe the bug that it solves and how it is solved
- you can also give more information to reviewers about how to test your changes
Solves a tiny error preventing launching gdb server using jlink in the form:
make debug-server

### Testing procedure
Details steps to test your contribution:
- which test/example to compile for which board and is there a 'test' command
- how to know that it was not working/available in master
- the expected success test output
Run a jlink gdb server on any supported board with jlink. Example on the dwm1001 board (nrf52 chip):
$ make -C examples/twr_aloha debug-server
make: Entering directory '/private/tmp/sync_fork/RIOT/examples/twr_aloha'
/private/tmp/sync_fork/RIOT/dist/tools/jlink/jlink.sh debug-server
### Starting GDB Server ###
Error: J-Link appears not to be installed on your PATH
make: *** [/private/tmp/sync_fork/RIOT/examples/twr_aloha/../../Makefile.include:731: debug-server] Error 1
make: Leaving directory '/private/tmp/sync_fork/RIOT/examples/twr_aloha'
Once corrected, you get a normal output
$ make -C examples/twr_aloha debug-server
make: Entering directory '/private/tmp/sync_fork/RIOT/examples/twr_aloha'
/private/tmp/sync_fork/RIOT/dist/tools/jlink/jlink.sh debug-server
