Good grief, you downloaded it; didn't you pay any attention to what
you were doing?

Have you read the notes on the SM page for VMMaker? They pretty
explicitly point out that the latest version is cut your throat
bleeding edge. The notes for the VMMaker3.8b4 explicitly points you
to the right svn level/tag
What version of VMMaker are you using? Did you fetch the correct svn
level platform tree to match that VMMaker version - the main head is
only suited to one particular release of VMMaker and to be honest if
you don't have some accumulated experience with building a vm a few
times you really shouldn't use the latest releases of either.
Have you read any of the swiki documentation? The VMMaker page leads
to a lot of information even with the current slightly f&%$ed up
state of the swiki.
