[Glass] First steps building to GS64 in Travis

Hi everybody!
Most of our open source projects at github.com/ba-st are using Travis for
building Pharo images and checking that everything can be loaded.

Now we wanted to add builds for Gemstone, to confirm that the projects can
be loaded and used from a GS64 image.

We started out simple, with Buoy, which is one of the smallest projects.
After adding "- GemStone-3.3.4" to the smalltalk: section of .travis.yml[1]
in Github and #gemstone to .smalltalk.ston[2] we checked to see that the
build is sadly failing[3].

It seems that the relevant error message is:
ERROR 2710 , a MetacelloPackageSpecResolutionError occurred (error 2710),
Could not resolve: BaselineOfBuoy [BaselineOfBuoy] in cache

Since our project is using Tonel, we believe it might be related to Tonel
support in Gemstone and/or Travis.

Also, I noticed that after logging to topaz, the script executed is:
      GsDeployer bulkMigrate: [
        Metacello new
          baseline: 'SmalltalkCI';
          load: 'Core'.
        System commitTransaction.
        (Smalltalk at: #SmalltalkCI) load:

This is quite different from the equivalent seen in Grease[4], where the
code is:
      (Smalltalk at: #SmalltalkCI) test:
'/home/travis/build/SeasideSt/Grease/.smalltalk.ston' named:
'GemStone-3.3.4 Server (travis)'.

It might have nothing to do, but we're really stumped about how to proceed
from here.

It could be that we're missing some very obvious fact, so please let us
know if there's any idea around about how to better troubleshoot this or
change the project setup.
