In your platforms directory (the one you got from Subversion), the
sqMemoryAccess.h file needs a patch. This is in Mantis bug report #4608
<http://bugs.squeak.org/view.php?id=4608>, and the actual patched file
is <http://bugs.squeak.org/file_download.php?file_id=2809&type=bug>.

Also apply the fix in Mantis #5688. You don't need this to get a running
VM, but you will not be able to connect to SqueakMap until you have
included this fix in your VM.

See also the reply from Martin Kuball. I'm not sure if the patch on
Mantix #5688 addresses the same issue, but possible it does. In any
case, #4608 and #5688 are sufficient to give you a working VM on
64-bit Linux systems.

There are some other issues listed in the Mantis "Squeak 64 bit" category,
but I don't think you need to worry about them if you are just running
32 bit images.
