The squeakvm interpreter VM is typically installed in /usr/local/, so the
start script is /usr/local/bin/squeak. This has been the case for the last
15 years or so.
If a unix/linux installs Cog, they will typically want to install it in
/usr/local/. In that case, the Cog start script stomps on the squeakvm
The same issue exists for installation in /usr/ as opposed to /usr/local/.
