[Vm-dev] Maturity of the pharo CMake build process?

you are having two problems (one depending on the other).

1) you are using an old version. That branch was moved to http://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-vm like more than a year ago… there the scripts are outdated. 
2) in your version, before execute sh build.sh, you need to execute (in “build" dir): ../script[I really do not remember the subdir name]/extract-commit-info.sh

that should generate the vmVersionInfo.h file

but well… I highly recommend you to use the correct branch before continue.
