rel-notes: Mention libffi packaging change

[skip ci]
parent c0e6c734
......@@ -239,3 +239,9 @@ Build system
There is currently no explicit dependency between the two in the build system and such there is no way
to notify ``base`` that the ``rts`` has been split, or vice versa.
(see :ghc-ticket:`5987`).
- GHC now ships with a snapshot of the ``libffi`` library, which is used for
foreign function invocation on some platforms. This was necessary as there
were numerous fixes which have not yet been incorporated into a ``libffi``
release. However, you can still use the ``--with-system-libffi`` ``configure``
flag to tell the build system to use the ``libffi`` installed on your system.
