It's now hosted here 
http://j-core.org/downloads/examples/vhdl_sim_v1.tar.gz and contains a 
Makefile that builds two VHDL simulations: one a simple hello world that 
shows printing messages to the console, and the other a more interesting 
serializer and deserializer with a test bench. See the README for more
