That's actually pure software emulation, not kqemu. You can't accelerate a
64-bit VM on a 32-bit host at all, not with kqemu nor with anything else.
And pure software emulation is extremely slow (about 50 times slower than
native when building packages, from my experience).

As I said, slower. ;-)

However, once the install is done, it isn't all that bad to use for simple stuff, and even 50x slower is fast enough to see if things work. It was a proof of concept, a friend did a Yellow Dog Linux install on the power emulation. It's fast enough to compile a program 64 bit if needed, that was the goal.
