I had just came to the same conclusions, but you must have libffi, since I
believe I couldn't compile without one of them on my ubuntu box.

It's the "make more" in BUILD-FROM-SCRATCH that is failing.

Do a "make distclean" and then a BUILDFROMSCRATCH (./configure && make
should also do it).  Gforth is not always building with some debris from the
previous build lying around.  The assumption is: There's some Gforth
installed capable of running the cross compiler, and running vmgen, and the
rest is done with what results of the build process.  You should always be
able to build Gforth with the last stable release.

Yes, as fflib and libffi aren't the primary C bindings any longer, quality
may suffer... especially, since I don't have any ffcall installed under
Linux anymore (not sure about libffi).
