Hi Hans.  Following up on an old bug report:

This turns out to be due to a bug in LLVM, namely that it improperly
assumes that signed integer arguments will be sign-extended by the
caller, although this is not specified by the SysV x86-64 PS ABI.
The recently-released libffi 3.0.12 works around this problem.

If you're interested in the gory details, see:


We've been told by another MacOS user that the FFI tests now pass when
Guile is linked against libffi 3.0.12, so I'm closing this bug.  Please
let us know if you continue to have problems with the FFI on MacOS.

Thanks again for the bug report!
