Images are irrelevant in terms of the builds. The vm.h just has to be 
renamed to slatevm.h as I recall. The project file /should/ do this, 
but apparently that functionality isn't working right any more. And you 
shouldn't even need to rebuild unless we announce a VM change (even 
then, the header rarely really changes).
