Hi,

you should install libffi (which is not in the ports), and not libffcall from 
the ports, as afaik libffi is better supported nowadays.
libffi should just compile, otherwise take a look into the Makefile in the 
port that I have on my side and on the patches Makefile* patches in the 
patches subdirectory in the port.
Then you may download the gnustep-startup tarball and try installing this one. 
Afaik it will tell you about any other missing dependencies.

Note that you should use gmake instead of make.
hth

cheers
Sebastian
