     Thanks! I got a working VM out of it, but there were a few broken
parts. Apparently the "codegen-scripts" directory got renamed to
"scripts", but the old name is still floating around
(extract-commit-info.sh didn't get run so vmVersionInfo.h didn't get
made, and other things complained).

     Also, the Homebrew integration is brittle. I ended up having to
build the third-party stuff with brew manually, and comment out all the
third-party add_subdirectory lines in CMakeLists.txt. Finally, I had to
add "#import <OpenGL/gl.h>" to sqSqueakOSXOpenGLView.h. I don't see how
it could have built without that...

     thanks again,
