On OS X 10.6 (and 10.7) which builds as 64bit by default, ffcall fails to build with the following error:

./configure --host=x86_64-apple-darwin10 (explicit --host is needed or it misidentifies as a 32 bit build and that also fails in a 64bit environment [1] )
cd avcall; make all
/bin/sh ./libtool --mode=compile gcc -x none -c ./avcall-x86_64.s
gcc -x none -c ./avcall-x86_64.s -o avcall-x86_64.o
avcall-x86_64.c:5:Unknown pseudo-op: .type
avcall-x86_64.c:5:Rest of line ignored. 1st junk character valued 95 (_).
avcall-x86_64.c:331:Unknown pseudo-op: .size
avcall-x86_64.c:331:Rest of line ignored. 1st junk character valued 95 (_).
avcall-x86_64.c:332:unknown section type: @progbits
avcall-x86_64.c:332:Rest of line ignored. 1st junk character valued 46 (.).
avcall-x86_64.c:337:Unknown pseudo-op: .string
avcall-x86_64.c:337:Rest of line ignored. 1st junk character valued 34 (").
make[1]: *** [avcall-x86_64.lo] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
### execution of make failed, exit code 2

Building as 32bit in a 32bit environment builds correctly.
