Thanks for the information, Dave.  Do I understand that this image is a 
64-bit, Squeak 4.6 image?

I was thinking spurstack64src was a way to build a 32-bit binary, 64-bit 
host VM. I generated from the SpurVMMaker image and built another target 
under build.linux32x86. It blew up compiling gcc3x-interp.c:

internal compiler error: in assign_by_spills, at lra-assigns.c:1281

So from what you've said here, I'm not doing the right thing trying to 
compile this am I?
