Well there is or was a mac menu bar plugin


you'll need to ensure your vm bundle contains that.  I can't say where the
smalltalk code you use to talk to it is, nor can I say how you would build
the VM with that included.


Otherwise you need a VM that has the ObjectiveCPlugin plugin  which I see
the pharo people compile.


Then you need the smalltalk code


Then consider Apple's documentation


Perhaps someone has written the Smalltalk code to interface to NSMenu ?
