+libffi's configure assumes that cross-compiled builds are complicated and
+introduces convoluted path manipulation involving gcc search paths to the
+install paths, resulting in paths like -L/usr/lib/../lib/ appearing in
+libffi.pc. When pkg-config is then used to obtain the linker flags for libffi
+it can't tell that this path is on the default search path and returns
+$SYSROOT/usr/lib/../lib which then gets written all over the target sysroot.
+This then means the sstate can't be shared and triggers QA errors.
+As this block is generally pointless, disable it.
