The interpreter VM is a 64 bit app running 32 bit images, so no
issues with 32-bit support. However, I expect that there will be
problems compiling on the newer llvm toolset, so I don't know if
a freshly compiled VM will work on Catalina.

The SqueakJS VM is a good choice in many cases, and it does run
6502 images.
