[packman] Multimedia:kodi broken by ffmpeg 3.4

OK, so the build has been failed
executing `ar crs audioengine.a AEFactory.o AESinkFactory.o…`. My
local build has been failed on `ar crs guilib.a DDSImage.o …`.
Increasing `ar` verbosity by setting `ARFLAGS=crsv` did work but
didn't help as the build failed on `ar crsv guilib.a…` again. I've
also found that ar actually did build that file, it just returned
non-zero code. I've tried to run failing command in buildroot dir
following way `ar crsv ~/tmp/guilib.a …` and it succeeds with non-zero
code, producing a file with only difference from previous one is the
timestamp in the header.

I need help, this is very confusing.

Thank you in advance.
