I guess subversion implements some strange definition of 'delete'  
with which I was not previously familiar.

Short answer: run 'configure --help'.

Long answer: configure will look fir a directory called 'src' by  
default (relative to platforms/unix/), ignoring src32/64.  If you  
want it to look for generated sources in some other place then use  
the '--with-src' option.  E.g:

     ../platforms/unix/config/configure --with-src=src64

will use platforms/unix/src64; or even

     ../platforms/unix/config/configure --with-src=../../src32

if you ran VMMaker in the dir containing 'platforms' and didn't  
manually change the location of the generated sources before  
generating a 32-bit VM.
