For example in situations where the configure/make process needs to
run compiled binaries and qemu won't handle those. If you don't have
the hardware, it's pretty nasty businnes to start hacking those away
by hand (even glib does this, though only for docs IIRC...).

This is true for example if you build ARMv6 binaries (for N800), as
the distribution of free emulators for the ARMv6 instructions is


Of course this would require v6 hardware, which the IOP is not according to




so that's not a reason to use it at least...
