Hi, in the process to upload a new version of the vm to Debian, I've
been redoing the packaging and testing it a bit.
The results are available at
http://svn.debian.org/viewsvn/pkg-squeak/packages/squeak-vm/trunk/debian/ or to anyone joining to the collaborative project to maintain squeak in Debian:

This is a brief collection of the problems I got after testing:
- The scripts squeak & squeak.sh don't work in Debian (or don't do it
for me)

- Gstreamer and Pango plugins segfault in amd64, so any image using them
will segfault in this architecture. So latest version of etoys will have
this problem.

- There are lintian problems with the FFI plugin, the error is explained
here: http://lintian.debian.org/tags/shlib-with-non-pic-code.html and
some possible workarounds are available

- There are still some patches needed for sound in 64 bits that I apply
because haven't been applied in the squeak-vm subversion, they're
available at

- The browser plugin can not be compiled anymore

For the plugins problem I don't have enough knowledge of them to be able
to fix them, if anyone has time or ideas to help in fixing them, they're
very welcome.
