If you could point me to a tutorial on this, I'd appreciate it, but I
think we're too far off-topic for emacs-devel.  If anyone else is
interested in packaging NaCl on the GNU ELPA, let me know directly.

Joakim's suggestion of bringing in libffi is good, but that's a lot of
work!  I hope someone is interested in doing it.
