Squeak 5.3 is released with a new Linux directory structure in 5.3.  In 5.2
and before, it was

    /usr/local/lib/squeak/Squeak-5.0-1234/[*.so, *.sources]

now, like the good old days when software was easy to run, it's simply one
directory with the executable stuff

   ./Squeak5.3beta-19316-64bit-201912311458-Linux/bin/[squeak, *.so,

along with one directory for the data stuff (images)


This simplification allows easy co-existence of 32-bit with 64-bit versions
of the same VM.

The SqueakV50.sources file must be present in at least one of those two

Very nice.
