I don't know if it's a kernel issue, however I tried some things, and
here are my findings:

instead of cp_if_changed $TMPH config.h, I put

cp $TMPH here
cp $TMPH config.h

and both 'here' and 'config.h' were corrupted.

However, putting

cp $TMPH /tmp/here
cp $TMPH config.h

gave me a correct config.h... Really, really strange ! But a least I
can try to compile and install ffmpeg :^)

Thanks for the hint!
