There are some changes that are not integrated.
See the Squeak VMMaker source for the change sets needed to alter the header for readImageFromFileHeapSizeStartingAt
and the new logic for sqAllocateMemory & sqImageFileRead that let's you mmap the image file in sqAllocateMemory and not assume you'll read the entire file into memory in sqImageFileRead

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).
