        How does C/Invoke compare to libFFI?
        At the C API level they're pretty similar, aside from some minor
        quibbles. libFFI has been around longer and is much more
        portable, but the last "release" was in 1998.

Note that there are separate libffi releases again:


        libffi-3.0.8 was released on December 19, 2008. You can ftp it
        from ftp://sourceware.org/pub/libffi/libffi-3.0.8.tar.gz
