I'm not entirely satisfied with that solution I'll have to admit.. I'm not
using Wayland in my builds, and I am still seeing
this floating dependency in the buildhistory package data.

[root at localhost lib]# arm-oe-linux-gnueabi-readelf libwayland-viv.so.0.0.0
-a|grep libffi
 0x00000001 (NEEDED)                     Shared library: [libffi.so.6]

Does this not mean that the libwayland-viv.so.0.0.0 library is in fact
linked directly to libffi ?
I think this is what OE's automatic dependency-scanner is picking up, and
why there is this churn in the buildhistory logs.
