[riot-users] Externalizing a board

Hi Robert,

I had the same issue a while ago with my own board based on the
nrf52840. My solution[1] works by setting the `BOARD` and the
`RIOTBOARD` variable in the application makefile pointing to the local
repository clone containing the custom board files. Is this something
that could also work for your case?
