If you have GCC 2.95 installed (it's an optional component of XCode,
at least through version 1.2 of XCode), you can modify the
"h-to-ffi.sh" shell script to use the GCC 2.95 preprocessor by
changing "gcc" to "gcc2" in the definition of the PREPROCESS variable
in the script.

The error you got - where the parser in ffigen was confused by a type
in a GCC 3.3 header file - suggests that there was a mismatch between
the preprocessor and parser.

I missed it too, for the same reason.
