Yes, this needs to be sorted out.  It should also be possible to
choose which qemu/kvm/etc binary to run.

I also discovered that the -no-kqemu switch doesn't exist at all on
PPC, which is one of the reasons that it fails to run on that
platform.  There's another problem with PPC as well, qemu on PPC
doesn't seem to support the -initrd option.  As usual, since I don't
have a PPC machine it's hard to debug this.  Instead I hacked around
