All the following refers to the gsoc_nci branch on 64bit Ubuntu

libffi, optimized = PASS
libffi, optimized, --without-core-nci-thunks = PASS
libffi, optimized, --without-extra-nci-thunks = PASS
libffi, optimized, both --without flags           = PASS
libffi installed, optimized, --without-libffi
--without-extra-nci-thunks --without-core-nci-thunks =

Nice work.

I am a big +1 to merging this branch after 2.10.0 is tagged.
