I suggested that ffcall should now be a requirement. Alex suggested that we
should put a flag in base that allows one to override the requirement of ffcall

I've attached a patch that does this (only for configure.ac; remember to
run autoconf if you want to test it). If neither ffcall nor ffi is
found, and --disable-do is not passed in, it prints an explanation (in
addition to the existing warning):

You most likely do not want to build -base without DO support. Many
things, including all applications, won't work at all without DO.
If you really want to build -base without DO support, add --disable-do
to the configure arguments.

and fails.  Perhaps the explanation should be extended to say that
ffcall is recommended, and with url:s to it and/or the build guide.

Any comments? Should I commit this?

Seems reasonable.
