I guess that the platforms/unix/src sources should work in principle,
although I would not be surprised if there are problems when compiling
on a 64-bit system. The platforms/unix/src source probably contain
source for plugins that have not been updated for 64-bit.

Personally, I'm just in the habit of using VMMaker and I tend to
think of the platforms/unix/src files as something that is there
mainly for reference.
