You are referring to Hercules (apt-get install hercules, see
http://www.conmicro.cx/hercules/) On a decent 32-bit Intel machine it is
as fast as any of us built packages a few years ago. It's not a compile
workload, but to give an example of how real-world it is you can run an
interpretive sql-backed website on the real Internet.

If you have problems installing Debian/s390 on Hercules and the Debian
s390 list doesn't respond then I'm happy to try to help.
