Hello - new question:

Can FFI be used in an Alien-aware VM?

Having built a new Mac VM I get "Callout mechanism not available",
though the FFI classes and plugin seem to be in place
(SqueakFFIPrims.bundle in 'Sqeak VM Opt.app/Contents/Resource').

Also, Applescript generates an error on startup at
ApplscriptInstance>>primOpenDefaultConfiguration: type subtype:
subtype  because the TestOSAPlugin is not defined (although this
plugin was not defined in my previous 3.8-biuilt VM).  Not sure if
this might be related to Alien/FFI somehow..

Thanks once again for all the help (hopefully getting closer).
