There is an 'XXX' in the method which turns the QEMU command name into the
full pathname to exec. It needs to actually look for it in $PATH instead
of using /usr, and it once its doing that, the method can actually return
NULL and thus we can provide a  useful message that QEMU is not installed.
Shouldn't be much work to fix it - I'll look at it later until you beat
me to it
