Hi Ben,

On linux, Eliot's new build scripts do most of the work. The only task after they run is to install the packages via monticello.
Here is the terse version on linux to get you (mostly) up and running from zero. 

 svn co http://www.squeakvm.org/svn/squeak/branches/Cog
cd Cog/image
./ buildspurtrunkvmmakerimage.sh
./ cogspurlinuxht/squeak  SpurVMMaker.image  &
Monticello browser
Repository http://source.squeak.org/VMMaker
CMakeVMMaker (latest) load
CMakeVMMakerSqueak (latest) load
HelpBrowser topic CMakeVMMakerSqueak

That gets tools installed. and you viewing documentation as it stands. (after being away for 1 year and viewing it,  I found it most un-helpful )

There is still configuration for putting the Cog source tree relative to the image that I will pass along after I have done it a few times using Eliot's scripts.
expect that tomorrow.

I am planning on massive refactoring and simplification of the thing. The attempt to maintain pharo (backwards) compatability has lead to design overload and code bloat.
