There are instructions for building with cmake in the file

Please feel free to ask questions about this on the vm-dev mailing
list (http://lists.squeakfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/vm-dev).
You will find people there with BSD experience who may be able to
help. Also, if you search the vm-dev list archives, you may find
some discussions from BSD users.
