Bad news: SONAME bumps from libffi.so.7 to libffi.so.8! I hope nothing will be broken.

Attention: it breaks gjs :(, and maybe other blfs packages

--disable-exec-static-tramp configuring libffi-3.4.2 is a known workaround.

My suggestion is to build libffi-3.4.2 with --disable-exec-static-tramp for 11.0. It's unlikely that all the downstream fixes can be arrived before package freeze.

Do we know of other package breakage? Do we know what 'exec-static-tramp' does?
