Well, there is a source for this of course (in the VMMaker Squeak package). Generating the C code is a manual, interactive process and requires a running Squeak installation. Making that scriptable is possible, but so far nobody has done it AFAIK.

FYI, Peter von der Ahe did it in the Newspeak project.  This isn't entirely relevant because some of this may be Newspeak code, but the source is available from http://newspeaklanguage.org/the-newspeak-programming-language/downloads/newspeak-source-2009-10-28.zip

I guess you're referring to NsVmMaker.ns1? That does not seem to be used by the regular build process. I guess it is invoked manually to regenerate the sources.
