Hm, it seems like x86emu should work on any platform, but I'm not familiar 
enough with its internals to say whether you need more defines for x86.  
Unconditionally enabling it would give us more exposure on the emulator and 
remove some special cases, so that's probably worth considering (assuming we 
can fix the problem you're seeing).  Otherwise, we'll probably want an 
autodetection function that uses vm86 on x86 and x86-64, but uses the 
emulator for every other platform.
