This is ok.
This should work, but I have never tried it. I think most APKBUILDs will
work too. Looking at Arch Linux it seems like most x86_64 bit specifics
are related to PIC, which we need anyway due to our hardened toolchain.

Those would probably require cross-compiling. I think its possible but
it will probably require some redesign of abuild and extra things to
consider in APKBUILDs.

I'm not familiar with ArchMobile. Does it cross-compile or native
compile in qemu? Native compile in qemu might work but is slow.
Btw, i use vserver for my development of x86. Its like an advanced
