Thanks very much for your reply. I have put lots of copies of
[libffi.a, libffi-5.a], [libffi.dll.a, libffi-5.dll.a] and
libffi-5.dll in a bunch of places, and it now appears that I get past
the JIT stage (where  refers to the same file but copied with a
different name). The build is still running, 1.3GB and counting.
So it appears that one of them has the right name in the right
location. I will backtrack to see which of the combinations was
Best way to contribute to the documentation for building pypy on
Windows using Mingw?
