That's a good question. The commented line was there from the first commit (in 9, changeset 9231:241f9696e3ad,
https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8043352) but I don't see a reason on why it was disabled.

libffi is also built in the GraalVM project, and that line is not commented there.

@sashamatveev or @kevinrushforth do you remember the reason?
