branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

For some reason, libffi installs some header files in
/usr/lib/libffi-<version>/include, which is a non-standard location
and therefore they do not get removed automatically by the
target-finalize logic. This commit adds a post-install hook in
libffi.mk to get rid of these unneeded headers on the target.
