Sorry.. wasn't clear. I should have said:
How does one generate .c files from slang using VMMakerTool into the 
Cross directory?

What's the thinking behind this:
    platnames _ vmMaker platformRootDirectory directoryNames 
copyWithoutAll: #('Cross' 'CVS').

in the platformsListMenu method in VMMakerTool? Seems that Cross would 
be an important directory to generate .c files in.
