Let me know if there's any other problems. It's been installed in master
as of yesterday also.

It shouldn't break anything, but I don't see much use for it unless your
software is using one of the functions included within it. You're welcome
to test it and it should work, but I doubt you would need to go to that
The one thing I want to investigate is if any of egcs's built-in functions
conflict with libffm's and, if so, which ones "win" out during linking.
Supposedly, there are a few functions that are duplicated by egcs (which
may be more inefficient than libffm's). I'll be investigating this soon,
