Need help building 2.3 VM.

I had trouble building under some version of IRIX or another, too.  I
ended up doing something like "gcc -o Squeak *.c -lm -lX11" to get it to
work, which seemed to work fine.  I didn't try the pluggable primitives
with this particular compile, though, so maybe those didn't work.
