The installed amd64 compiler is gcc 3.4 but without libffi. Trying
to install libffi from ports says that it is not availble on amd64.
Compiling gcc 3.4 from ports also does not install libffi. The latter
puzzles me as a commit was made to gcc to add support on the 7th Of June.
Currently I am unsure as to how to get a working libffi on the
system. I would hope that it could be done without installing
all of the gcc .4 port - which seems somewhat redundant as this
is the same compiler which comes with the system - but even as a last
resport option this does not install the library.
