Thx David

A couple of questions...

1. Regarding CMake Isn't Eliot migrating more towards a Gnu style build tree from CMake (that is what I have inferred from emails he has addressed to Tim R)?

2. If it is going to be Gnu-ified (which I do prefer) would separate build trees for 64 bit, 32 bit and 64/32 hybrid build trees make sense for simplifying and isolating problematic build issues?
      (If I may add, for the SqueakSSL, I reduced the source to the minimum to get the unixbuild to compile and run--AsynchFilePlugin \ B2DPlugin \ BitBltPlugin \FilePlugin \SocketPlugin \MiscPrimitivePlugin
       and a very slimmed down source tree that is actually easy to understand--see my blog post: http://timmydosmalltalk.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/first-take-on-the-minimum-plugins-needed-for-a-functioning-image/)

Regardless,we will git-r-done. Its going to take me many more brain cycles to get good at this stuff, so it will take time.
