The branch passes all of `make fulltest` on my OS X 10.5.8 box.
Configuration: * libffi *not* installed.
+1 to merge after 2.10.

Related bug report:
LibFFI actually *is* installed on this box; LibFFI comes with the 10.5  
Developer Tools (i.e. GCC compiler).
Apple (or BSD?) chooses to install the header file as <ffi/ffi.h>  
instead of just <ffi.h>,  so the Configure probe fails to find it.
This issue should not delay the branch merge.

Hope this helps,
