Description Adam Goode 2009-03-16 22:37:47 EDT
Description of problem:
_ctypes.so links in a private copy of libffi. It should use the system libffi to avoid duplication. A diff shows no significant changes between the system libffi and the one in ctypes.

Actually, this is slightly more urgent than I realized, the local libffi in python doesn't contain ffi_closure_alloc and ffi_closure_free, which are needed to fix bug #488396.
