I may be being naive, but could an X86 PC be used with an ARM chroot and
qemu-arm-static to emulate ARM instructions? Or is qemu not stable
enough, or the emulated environment different enough that package
building would fail (e.g. through use of uname)?
PCs have the advantage of RAM (assuming QEMU can handle 2GB+), fast
hardware and multiple cores.
