It seems that DrScheme now relies in some way on the FFI. We use the
FFI more and more, so that's not too surprising.

Johan Coppieters recently supplied a patch to make the build work for
Solaris 10 (thanks, Johan!), and we have applied the patch for our next
version. Meanwhile, I'm enclosing a variant of Johan's patch; the patch
should be applied in "plt/src/foreign", and it should work on the
v4.2.4 sources so that you don't need `--disable-foreign'. Please let me
know if I got something wrong and it doesn't work.
