You have a few options here. 

One is to hack. :) You can change the Applescript to point directly to
Self. Open the SelfDroplet project in Project Builder (you might be
able to do this in the Applescript Script Editor too) and change:

"\"${SELF_WORKING_DIR}\"/vm/mac_osx/vm_project/build/Self.app/Contents/MacOS/Self -s \"" & unixFileName & "\""

to e.g., :

"Projects/self/vm/mac_osx/vm_project/build/Self.app/Contents/MacOS/Self -s \"" & unixFileName & "\""

Another is to set the SELF_WORKING_DIR in your .cshrc. 

A third, probably the most "MacOS X" way is to set this in your
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist . See
<http://developer.apple.com/qa/qa2001/qa1067.html> for details.
