libffi works fine on Windows. You can easily find out where it works
by looking in gcc/libffi/configure.in. There is a big case statement
that sets up the build for all the working platforms.
Things are a little different if you use the closure API. Then you
have to look in gcc/libffi/include/ffi.h.in to see what platforms
The "normal" API works on more platforms than the closure API. I
think libffi works on all the Debian architectures except HPPA.
Nobody has ever done that port.
