I can see that this might work for kernels, but I'd have thought
anything else needs a full chroot environment to get all the
dependencies right. Even boot-floppies need vmelilo, which isn't
available for x86. I presume it could be compiled for it, but would
endian-ness become a problem?

Has anyone tried using UAE as a build environment? I notice it can do a
68020 with an MMU, so it might work.
