We're coming up on the 10th anniversary of the last libffi release.
People are still using it, and gcc doesn't install it as a user library
-- so perhaps it's time to make another new release.
I've updated the libffi cvs sources with a recent snapshot from gcc. It
builds on x86 linux as a stand-alone library.
I'm just not exactly sure where to install the headers. Currently ffi.h
goes in /usr/include, and ffitarget.h goes in
/usr/lib/gcc/include/libffi/ffitarget.h. I'm thinking a stand-alone
host library should install all header in /usr/include. We just need to
make sure that they are multi-lib clean.
In any case, I'd appreciate it if people would like to try checking out
the latest from the libffi cvs repository and build/test it.
Built on arm-linux-gnu (oabi). One warning with gcc-4.2.3 about the
implicit declaration of function __clear_cache (and I have no idea where
the libgcc include file is supposed to be).
Tests largely pass: 1326 expected passes, 35 unexpected failures. If you
are interested in the failures, I could produce a detailed log.
