Take a copy of the macbuild directory, call it e.g. macstackbuild, and point
the new CoreVM xcode project at ../stacksrc instead of ../src, and to
compile gcc3x-interp.c instead of cogit.c and gcc3x-cointerp.c and you
should be able to build a stack vm.  You can do this either by editing the
CoreVM.xcodeproj/project.pbxproj file by hand (it has UUIDs for files so it
can be tedious) or using Xcode itself (it has an arcane way of specifying
include paths and #defines, so it can be tedious).

John McIntosh has already built a stackvm and is using it routinely on the
iPhone.  I'm not sure if the build directory or xcode project is in svn, but
knowing john it probably is.
