That's by design. As of Arnold 5, alShaders are no longer being developed.

Anders compiled a version that would load with Arnold 5, but alSurface just renders red, so you know that alSurface is being used.

"Arnold 5's new standard library replaces most of the functionality of alShaders. As such alShaders (at least in its current form) will not be updated for Arnold 5. However, in order to make upgrading existing networks to the new standard easier, there is a "transition" version available. The pattern and utility nodes should function the same as in Arnold 4, but the surface shaders (alSurface and alHair) are empty parameter shells and will render flat red."

alSurface is no longer supported. Why aren't you using Standard Surface in Arnold 5?
