#64 DOSEmu on PowerPC (or other non x86 archs)

I prefer DOSEmu over DOSBox (mostly since I don't have to do crazy mounts and updates every time I change a file, and DOSEmu integrates better into the UNIX environment). I've used it for porting programs back to DOS on x86. However, it would be cool if I could build it on PowerPC with full x86 emulation (since there is no x86 CPU here) so that I could still use it rather than DOSBox.

Thanks.

================================
configure: Compiling with optional 386 emulation code...

error:
Your system has no complete code16 functional gas,
you must upgrade to atleast binutils-2.9.1.0.25
in order to compile DOSEMU ... giving up

    I think we have no one to look into this.
    Please use dosbox or qemu till this is fixed.

    Have you tried compiling recently?[I have not on PowerPC] Also stupid question, you do have binutils-2.9.1.0.25 or greater correct? I have an old PowerPC Macintosh that dual-boots Mac OS and Linux, I could try and help you troubleshoot what's going on.
