I am following the instructions on the web site for building in MSYS2 and I’m running into an error with the libffi library.


These are the instructions I’m using



and this is the error I get running ./configure for base

checking FFI library usage...       0 [main] conftest (34696) child_copy: cyghea

p read copy failed, 0x18034B408..0x180364FC8, done 0, windows pid 34696, Win32 e

rror 6

   2486 [main] conftest (34696) C:\msys64\home\dboyd\git\libs-base\conftest.exe:

*** fatal error - ccalloc would have returned NULL

configure: error: The ffi library (libffi) does not appear to be working.  Perha
