Confirmed. We have never had any issues building libffi with GCC on Solaris 
systems (namely on snv_67, snv_89, snv_121 and our custom Joyent OS which is 
based on Illumos/snv_147). The compilers that I have used are GCC 3.4.3 that 
came with Solaris SXCE, and my own hand built GCC 4.4.2 and GCC 4.5.2 (I don't 
think I have ever tried pkgsrc's own GCC builds).

(The tricky parts are compiling with ABI=64, which is solvable with heavy 
messing with the configure phase, and IMO the package is broken in this regard 
out of the box; and compiling with Studio, which is to my knowledge not 

Mads, what exactly is the error you're getting? In your email I can only see 
the "ignoring #pragma ident" warnings.
