It would be good to try making the interpreter run on more than one
platform; right now it only works on i386 with sysv ABI.
The thing that needs to change for the interpreter to support a
new platform is to modify libffi to support closures; which is not too
hard to add.
The way the interpreter uses libffi could also be cleaned up, but it
would be a great motivation if this was driven by new architectures
being suported by libffi.
If someone is interested in working on this, I'd be happy to help.
Where I am working, we mostly use Solaris, but there is some serious
linker problem in that configuration. Does anyone have an idea of if
and when this could be fixed?
