Probably you will need to compile the VM yourself then. I do not
know much about building software on a Mac, but John provides
lots of documentation in the platforms/Mac OS/vm/Documentation
To make the VM for 64-bit images, there is a checkbox on the
VMMakerTool for "64-bit image". If you do not use VMMaker, maybe
it is enough to just edit the file src/vm/interp.h and change
SQ_VI_BYTES_PER_WORD from 4 to 8.
