Comment (by programmingkidx):

 After creating a symbolic link to /usr/local/bin/patch in /usr/bin/ I was
 able to install libffi. I don't know why libffi's installation has to only
 use /usr/bin/patch. I thought using any version of the patch command would
 be ok. Maybe one day the strict requirement to use only /usr/bin/patch can
 be removed.
