 I could build it,
 Unfortunately, the DFFI *FEATURE* only seems available when it's built
 with libffi support, and I think that DFFI is necessary for CFFI.  As I
 personally use the mostly UFFI compatible native FFI this shouldn't
 affect me, but it'd be interesting to see if latest CFFI can work on
 ECL without DFFI (CFFI being a popular dependency nowadays)...
 When I can I'll do a test with which a previous release without DFFI
 was failing with CFFI.
