[oi-dev] library/libffi breaks dependencies

Hi Andrzej et al,

I just noticed that latest update of the hipster repo broke dependencies of
libffi library. I noticed it in Firefox as it failed to start due to
missing libffi.so.5 dependency.

Simple ln -s fixed the issue (ln -s libffi.so.6.0.1 libffi.so.5) but it's
an ugly hack.

Can you look into it? Or I missed something in past few days/weeks?
Alternatively, advise me briefly how to fix the pkg and I'll post a patch
(or pull request on github).

Here some "statistical" details:
