Hi Tim.

For Squeak 5.3, use the Metacello script:

Metacello new
configuration: 'FFI';

Latest version for 5.3 is FFI version 1.13 with:
- FFI-Pools.TorstenBergmann.4
- FFI-Kernel-nice.68
- FFI-Tests-nice.14
- FFI-MacOS-spd.5
- FFI-Win32-cbc.16
- FFI-Unix-mtf.4

Whilst loading FFI into a *5.3* image (ie not trunk) I notice that the latest versions (post FFI-Kernel-mt.106, 13 June 2020) changed Parser>>externalFunctionDeclaration to use #beWritableObject which is not part of the 5.3 image.

The question is "which version of FFI-Pools and FFI-Kernel are actually the preferred ones for a 5.3 image"? The SqueakMap entry didn't get updated, so that offers no clues. None of the MC packages I've trawled through have any comment about being The Right One. Does anyone remember? I'd quite like to use the versions that we released with the image for this.
