[opensuse-buildservice] Build issues against openSUSE Tumbleweed

Dear hackers and packagers,

My sincere apologies - once again we are struck by a delete request
having impacts way beyond what we expect to to touch.

As part of the cleanup activities, gcc5 has been removed from the
distro. This also impacts libffi4; The distro has gained a new libffi
implementation (libffi7, version 3.2.1) which has been around for a

As we now deleted libffi4, though, it became apparent that not
everything is yet rebuilt against libffi7 (no real surprise there: we

I apologize for this issue caused and will be trying to find a
workaround for now to get you guys going again. Please stay tuned.

I filed this as

Any ideas are welcome on how to avoid this in the future - the more
