1. The wisdom of the Internet has not been able to figure out how to
generate a core dump on MacOS 10.15.2 (Catalina).  The usual set of
enabling steps can be performed without error, but still no core dump.

2. Until today I believed that there was no way to generate a Cygwin core
dump.  I know now that there is, but I may not be able to test it until
Monday.  I'll let you know, and hopefully that will provide insight into
the MacOS problem as well.

3.  I will try to work further on the MacOS libffi problem (which surfaces
when you do --disable-jit to bypass the above problem) to convince MacOS to
use GNU libffi rather than the native one.  It probably has to do with
pkg-config, which I barely understand.
