Well, we had the same problem so we produced a modified version that
is built using sbox's host-g++/host-gcc. This allows to use the same
binary both in x86 and ARMEL targets, and is a lot faster on ARMEL
(and does not segfault).

The "catch" is that, given that the binary is actually compiled for
x86, it will not run if installed on the device. It will only work on

So I ask other developers using cmake (I suppose there are not that
many, otherwise the problem would be reported sooner, given that cmake
+ fremantle + ARMEL always segfaults): is it acceptable for you?

Note that this is in fact a qemu bug, but doing the compilation with
host-gcc/host-g++ did the trick and is easier than debugging qemu.

If others agree, I can produce a patch against the latest version in
fremantle-extras devel and upload a new version for cmake.
