Hello Gilles,

The libffi-4.2.0-3 I used, was coming from the previously mentioned repository:
<http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/power/software/aix/linux/toolbox/alpha.html>.

That said, if I click on <Source> link, it points me to <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gcc>
So, as far as I understand, it's the version of libffi coming with gcc project and so of the same release as the gcc 
available at this place i.e. 4.2.0-3.

What's the difference with sourceware.org/libffi?
It's very not clear to me: reading this announce: <http://sourceware.org/ml/libffi-discuss/2009/msg00146.html>, it seems 
that gcc one is the merge of the upstream?

Hth,
	r.

PS: As I was fired from my previous position, I don't have any more access to my testing system and so couldn't more 
helpful, sorry :<(
