Igor's work is great, and I encourage everyone to read Mariano's
blog. There is a lot of active VM work going on these days, and we
are fortunate to have people like Mariano taking the time to document
it, write blogs, and create videos to explain how things work.

My intention was just to document a working "recipe" for the build
procedure that I actually use when building a standard VM on my
own PC. The information all exists elsewhere, but sometimes it is
helpful to write it down step by step in a form that anyone can
easily follow.

No, I was simply documenting that steps that I actually use when
building an interpreter VM on my own PC.
