Someone has *had* to have done this before.Did you try asking on the libffi list or anything?

Yes, anything, e.g.:

But I can build it, too. I'm just not able to produce an ABI compatible version of GLib with msvc. Like I did for the last eleven years [1].

Are there any objections to include the new fallback implementation with
standard GLib?

It's a lot of code duplication in a *very* tricky code base.  See for example.

Your code in a quick inspection looks like it only handles x86-32
Yes, that's what I tested.

Windows; what about Win64?
For win64 this would be only of educational interest, because there is no msvc compiler targeting msvcrt.dll (outside of some platfrom SDKs).

And it'd also need work for Windows/ARM, etc.
Wont check before I can buy interesting hardware for winrt ;)
My guess is there will be much more showstoppers, though.

Please - try harder to get libffi to build?

As I said, I can build libffi with msvc(9). And if I would drop the msvc6 build (pure msvcrt.dll dependency) I could even link it.

Given that fixing the showstopper is not deemed to be useful, I should probably withhold my other fixes as well:
