There are, for better or for worse, several ways to do it. The standard
unix VM would be a suitable choice, and build information is on squeakvm.org
There is not yet a jit-enabled VM for ARM (i.e. Cog) but you can build
a StackVM, and several people have reported success on this (I don't have
the links so hopefully someone else can do so). The StackVM provides the
underpinnings of Cog and does provide some performance benefits, although
not yet the actual high-performance jit (but work is under way on that also).
There is also a vm-dev mailing list, so if you have more questions
please feel free to ask there.
