I put sq64-10-dtl.tgz on your ftp site. This contains an image with
VMMaker, OSPP, and a few unofficial fixes. You can use it with current
platform sources from Subversion.

I don't think that anyone keeps images on squeakvm, aside from the
original one that was provided a couple of years ago. You should consider
that as a reference implementation that shows what can be done, not as
a supported product. But the good news is that Ian and Dan did all of
the hard work, and if a few of us pitch in to update the plugins and
do some other maintenance work on it, then 64-bit Squeak will work
just fine.
