I don't really get it.

"test -r" or "test -f" - what does that have to do with fixing permissions?

I think "test -w" would be a good test because the makefile's process also
copies the file and there can only do it if the file is writable.

For fixing permissions, I think, we have to use "cp -f" - my man page says
unlinking is done after copying and thus retaining permissions. So we have to
ensure the correct permissions just once for htdocs/ffmpeg-logo.png.
