Thanks for doing the ConfigurationOfVMMaker update.

I had the same question. John, is NewsqueakIA32ABIPluginAttic just
there to hold on to some no-longer-used primitives? It compiles fine
so I am assuming that it is safe to use (a class comment would be
good BTW).

FYI: I made the updates to VMMaker platforms/Cross/vm, and can verify
that the plugin compiles cleanly (building a 32-bit plugin/VM  on a
64-bit Linux platform). However, I did not load Alien and cannot verify
that the resulting plugin functions correctly.
