... ffcall is part of the clisp tree and is actively maintained by the
clisp community.

The major differences between ffcall and libffi are:
  - License: ffcall is under GPL, libffi under LGPL.
  - Scope: ffcall does both the callouts to C and the callbacks from C,
    whereas libffi does only the callouts.
  - Functionality: ffcall also works for many simple 'struct' types.
