Comment(by johannes.schrimpf@…):

 I could compile the packet by overriding the libffi compilation in the
 ctypes setup.py file, line 167:


 changing from:

 I do not know if this skips to much code, but it did install for me. I can
 import ctypes in python, but i did not test the functionality.
 Maybe it helps to build a patch or a workaround.
