That sounds slightly less easy...

Oh, right, forgot to mention I used the stable-branch ;-)

That's way 3 of 2 then. "steal" the patch from the master repository and
"backport" it to stable. The quickest way with the smallest possibility
to add my own typos to the whole thing.

I'll start with the "backport" and if that fails I'll move on to the 
master branch. There are plans to make it run on the old SLAX 6,
if possible - so sticking to a not-so-up-to-date branch is one of the
options. But that's not an absolute must.

BTW: The final goal is to crosscompile QEMU in a one-click way. Don't 
expect it to be done by the end of this week, though... ;-)
