Thanks for the response, David.

I still don't understand the process. (I promise, I did read the FAQ and the
64-bit Unix Squeak pages!) OK, so there's a Subversion repository for the
Squeak VM. And there's VMMaker. Now if I run VMMaker (having first created a
./platform/unix), I get a small number of files. For instance, in the vm
directory there's interp.c, interp.h and sqNamedPrims.h. These files aren't
in the svn repository.

Should VMMaker have its "Path to generated sources" point to the checked-out
svn repository instead, so the VMMaker-generated files alter the repository?
