There seems to be a great deal of difficulty in building the VM for various
configurations.  The UNIX applications I ported to DOS invariably had a
readme (or config.txt?) file with a whole list of configurations supported,
and asked anyone who built a new one to add to the list.  Is there a similar
approach to the VM build for Squeak available in one place?

I seem to remember seeing something about a learn or teach utility that
helped to build the makefile or something.  I think a lot of UNIX utilities
are available in Windows equivalents.  Anybody know what the utility was?
