[OpenWrt-Devel] BB SDKs are too lean (no libffi, etc.)

Some time ago there was a complaint that in BB RC, toolchain size was
bloated (which should be resolved in release, AFACT). I'd like to
complain about the opposite situation - BB release SDK tarballs appear
to be too small and lack many libraries. My current gripe is lack of
libffi, but comparing size of AA SDK (600+Mb) with BB SDK (~80Mb), one
may imagine a lot of stuff is lacking.

I don't know if that can be attributed to feed refactoring which
happened in BB, or something else, but it would be nice if this got a
bit of attention and was resolved, if over time.
