Libffi as found on the snapshots should work on Windows, but currently
it depends on having a libtool installation, which might not have been
ported to Windows.

I want to get rid of Libtool in mono, so we can compile it natively.

On the long run, libffi wont be used.  It is there just for
bootstraping purposes.  The JIT engine will be used in the future to
replace it.
