I've just pushed some changes to git HEAD. C functions with bool
return values are compiled now.

ffi.errno() is not compiled, because it's supposed to be called
only in the (uncommon) error path. You need to check the return
value of most standard C functions before you can assume a valid
if ffi.C.foo() == -1 then
local err = ffi.errno() -- Uncommon error path.
