I'd prefer to switch Kaffe over to depend on libffi [0]. We already have 
support for libffi
in the code that's enabled with the --with-libffi option of the 
configure script.

The main reason I'd like to switch to libffi for the next release is 
that it can be collaboratively
maintained with other projects using it, so I'd suggest adapting it for 
your port (and sending
patches to libffi developers :). It comes with an extensive test suite, 
too (and requires dejagnu
for running the test suite).
