VS2015 build of libffi?

Ed VanVliet
Dear libffi crew,

Is there a prescribed way to build (or use) libffi for x86 and x64 using visual studio 2015? Noting that VS2015 has the clang front end (which I don’t think existed in 2014).

Sincerely,

Ed

Not being libffi crew, i would still like to point out 2 things:
1) libffi is a hard dependency for GTK+ stack, and GTK+ stack is known to
be reliably buildable with MSVS.
2) Threre are meson[1] build definitions[2] for libffi, and meson has some
support for MSVS projects (although i would probably guess that ninja +
cl.exe is better supported, but that's just a guess)
