Yeah.  I also tried ARM, but only built clean 1.7.9 (as generic) there.
I might setup some scripts to keep this kind of VMs running for our
team's use.

Really?  Who/where?

Hardly.  I think this QEMU setup on FX-8120 is about twice slower than
my UltraSparc IIi toys from 2000 or so.  (I keep them powered down most
of the time - don't want the extra noise and power consumption and heat,
given the very sporadic expected use.)

This one was not triggered here.

BTW, I only tried unstable, not bleeding.

Great.  Thanks!
