I don't mind introducing USING_LIBFFI.  I think this is a good idea.

However, couldn't we somehow ask libffi whether it should be used?
That way we only need to do the configure hacking in a single place.
Ideally libffi could tell us (1) if it works on the platform and (2)
if the closure code is supported on the platform.
