The current VM version can run from the bld directory directly. You could zip 
just the binaries (squeak, squeak.sh, squeakvm */so.*,...) and unzip them into 
a relative directory (say $HOME/.npsqueak/lib/). Now you can run it with 
$HOME/.npsqueak/lib/squeak. Look into the launcher script 'squeak' for
