    The attached patch allows the bundled libffi used in non-Darwin POSIX builds (Modules/_ctypes/libffi, along with Modules/_ctypes/libffi.diff) to be removed. It depends on the patch in bpo-27976, and does not affect OSX or Windows.

    The patch will need to be updated to just completely remove the --with(out)-system-ffi check everywhere but OSX. It will also need to make some changes after the latest patch in bpo-27976.
