[C2hs] Binding to Libdb, FunPtrs

I'd like to use c2hs to create a binding for Sleepy Cat's LibDB.
However, some difficulties crop up:
- variadic functions. I realize I can't call them anyway, and I don't
need to (they are just for primitive error reporting). But there are
pointers to variadic functions in some structures, and I need c2hs to
parse them and correctly calculate offsets.
- lots of FunPtrs. The whole API is defined as structures with FunPtrs
inside. c2hs will happily create get hooks for them, but won't
generate the foreign import "dynamic" declarations.
- defines. Am I right in assuming that c2hs does not recognize
#define'd constant and so cannot reflect them in Haskell?
I'm willing to dive into the code and fix this, I just want to make sure
I don't (clumsily) duplicate any effort. As for the FunPtrs inside
structs, I'm thinking of a new hook that combines a get hook and a fun
(or call) hook. Does anyone have a better idea?
Manchmal stehe ich nachts auf und installier's mir einfach...
