Issue 345: use libffi built into gcc instead of builtin_apply

Reported by Nikolaus Schaller, Apr 3, 2012

this would make the NSMethodSignature and NSInvocation code more 
portable.

the gcc internal libffi is only used for gcj (java) and not easily 
available.

So better use libffi on the system:

Debian Squeeze uses 3.0.9 (libffi5)

This is not sufficient since we have to convert forward:: into an 
NSInvocation. And this is beyond libffi.

Has been solved without libffi
