The last time I merged libffi, we were not able to build the MacOS X and Windows libffi from the upstream sources, but used the internal copy of the copy. Now that libffi 3.0.11 is released, we could

 - update to this new version, see if the MacOS X and Windows
   builds work (there are upstream related changes)

 - start defaulting to the system libffi for at least some targets
   (e.g. linux), for which we know that almost nobody will use the
   internal copy

No, I don't volunteer to maintain ctypes itself.
