> I expect that the root cause is missing libffi(-dev[el]) on your system

Yes, on my Ubuntu 18.04, `make` failed to compile _ctypes module.
After install libffi-dev, it was compiled successfully:

One more word, full necessary dependencies on my Ubuntu 18.04:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 bzip2 libbz2-dev zlib1g-dev libssl-dev openssl libgdbm-dev libgdbm-compat-dev liblzma-dev libreadline-dev libncursesw5-dev libffi-dev uuid-dev
