I spend a few more hours on Gordon's SELF for Smalltalk code 
( and finally reach 
a state were it was able to completely read in the "core/init.self" file. 
This doesn't really mean you can already use it, but now there's a much 
better chance that the parser and interpreter work correctly and it 
shouldn't be that difficult to start trying to read in the other bootstrap 
files from the original SELF distribution.  Just add three dozens more 
primitives... :-)

If you're interested, you can get the source from my webpage at  You need a VisualWorks 5i Smalltalk to load the code. 
The page contains instructions how to get a free non-commercial version.
