That's what this list is for.

Install the VMMaker package from SqueakMap. It contains most of the  
cross-platform primitives, which are written in (a subset of)  
Smalltalk, and translated to C. There are some platform-specific  
primitives, too, which need additional C support code. It can be  
downloaded from squeakvm.org.

It contains the sourcecode of all methods from the Squeak 3.0  
release. It is be shared by all 3.x images. Changes that happened  
since then are recorded in the .changes file accompanying your image.
