I'm embarassed to say, I can't seem to remember how to install 32-bit
Squeak on a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 install.  Installing the original
interpreter VM "squeak-vm" from apt works fine but obviously I need to
run Cog and Spur too.  Simply untarring them to /usr or /usr/local
reports 32-bit libraries are missing.

In earlier Ubuntu's, this meant installing ia32-libs, but 14.04
reports that package has been replaced by #(lib32z1 lib32ncurses5
lib32bz2-1.0).  But after installing those spur -version reports

/usr/local/bin/../lib/squeak/5.0-3370/squeak: error while loading
shared libraries: libuuid.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No
such file or directory

Found some complex VM discussions in the list archives with that
search string, but not clearly related.  Any help is appreciated and I
will get it recorded in a wiki page.
