That's also fixed in the latest sources.

In the "Community" link, it's in the "Development" section.

You should also be able to find it by following the "Download" link and
then "Nightly build installers", but the updated version of that page
is not yet in place.

In the case of `libffi', we could fix `configure' to detect and use an
existing installation. That's on my list.

Unfortunately, it won't work for the other libraries you suggest. We
use a thin and customized slice of `libgmp'. Our `libgc' is also
patched, mostly to extend the finalization support.
