Just a word of warning, I was trying to use a QEMU KVM to be a cross compiler for a K6/233 as well. I learned too late that KVM will happily execute CMOV instructions even if you specify a 486 emulation which resulted in an unworkable machine when transferring to a real machine.

Not that there wasn't any better alternative, but it was unexpected nevertheless. Turned out to be a Gentoo issue anyway.

And yes my 32-bit only Atom is up for an emerge --update @world with the 17 profile update. ugh.

Interesting.

Always used vmware myself as I have a company supplied license for it. Only time ever that I used QEMU was to emulate an ARM machine and that turned out to run even slower than on the actual box. Not a big success and it in fact did not allow me to do what I actually intended, which was to build and test a new uboot. So now I use an i686 virtual machine to build for armv5te. Not ideal and I have a growing list of packages that appear to compile correctly but in reality don't, but it still gets most of the work done.
