If you navigate with your Terminal.app inside your installed "VM", you'll see
inside the ".app" directory a subdirectory called "Contents", and below that a
"MacOS", and below that an executable.  That executable can be hardlinked to
anywhere in your $PATH (like /usr/local/bin) as the name "squeak", and it it
will work as advertised for "unix" platforms.
