Not quite there yet, and x86 only, but check out Bee Smalltalk:


Just started a port to Cuis, so don't look at the code, but the 
README.md has pointers to essential docs:


A Pharo bootstrap exists.

Very promising first steps, IMHO.

I am very slow, but _my_ overall goals are [1] reproduce Bee bootstrap 
in Cuis to understand how they did it, [2] do ARM64/RISC-V:64G port, [3] 
graft Cuis on top.

Huge job. Tons of code to go through. I have a busy life and may not 
live to see it through, but darn, is it ever interesting! :)
