The error is in the 'fixTemp' of the errorCode variable of the  
primitive method.
It appears that the latest Pharo has its own #fixTemp: method on the  
encoder, which is overwritten by the one in the Alien-Prereqs package.

I removed the #fixTemp: method that comes with Alien and all seems to  
work just fine if we stick with the one that comes from Pharo (all  
tests are green). A note to make is that the #fixTemp: of Alien was  
never executed before this version of Pharo, simply because the #code:  
method on a MethodNode has never existed (which is sent by the  
#fixTemp: that comes with Alien).

However, I'm not comfortable saying that this is the right patch to  
make. Perhaps someone familiar with the compiler or John can tell us  
if this is fine?
Another issue might be the compatibility with Squeak here. I should  
take a look....

I published the patch anyway in the meantime.
