Dropping libFFI

I don't like the dependency on libffi anymore. The prime reason being that it becomes near impossible to treat strings as character arrays. The second reason, I expect problems with it when compiling on different platforms - it drops a dependency. The last reason, despite that everything -especially the definitions of external terms- becomes more bloated, it will simplify the compiler and make native function calls a lot faster.

So long, C...
