Off the top of my head, from my most immediate environment:

- most of scsh
- bindings for ODBC (also for scsh)
- bindings for NIS and LDAP (also for scsh)
- the bindings which come with Elk (I believe that includes Xlib, Xt,
  and Motif, among other assorted stuff)

I don't know how close the stuff written for PLT 3m is, and how much
there is of it.

I also suspect that some stuff written for O'Caml (which also has a
SRFI-50-style FFI) could be adapted pretty easily.  I don't have a
list handy, but there's quite a lot of stuff there.
