That's exactly what build_interpreter_vm.sh and rake build do - pull
down that particular tarball, and run the make in platforms/unix. The
advantage of the rake build is that, since Ruby is a far superior
scripting language to shell, it'll do the right thing in a bunch of
different places, depending on your OS.

Ah, actually, build_interpreter_vm.sh builds _the latest_ VM (as in
the output of build.squeak.org's InterpreterVM job). rake build builds
_the latest released VM_.
