Usually this is because 'ffi.h' itself refers to other headerfiles which cannot be found. For this reason you need to to export the environment variable CPPFLAGS before running 'configure'.

export CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/ffi

Please note the '-I' just before the path! Please crosscheck that 'ffi.h' can find all the files it refers to.

I don't know why I chose the source code rather than the package? Must
be blind in one eye; and can't see out of the other! ;-)

Thanks! The package installed flawlessly. BTW, IYO, why is "configure"
choking? I _hate_ not being able to build a package from scratch.

Hi Duke,

Why bother to compile? There is a MacOSX installer with precompiled binaries
which you can use right away.

Please download
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gtk-server/GTK-server-2.3.1-sr.pkg and you
can use GTK-server immediately.
