Hi chuckr,

great to see somebody interested in GNUstep on ARM. The ffcall problem
you stumpled upon is not GNUstep specific, but there is already a bug
report on it in the GNUstep savannah page: #9468 and this even includes
a patch. I did not try this myself, but it is surely worth a look
(http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=9468). Also not
sure if ffcall 1.10 already includes this patch.
