So I was able to get a working qemu 1.5.0 on win32. but it is so slow it really is unusable.
there is still an issue with core-routinewin32, so that has to be built with O1 optimizations, but the disk access is horrifically slow. I’ll have to see how to profile gcc code, but any write disk access spikes the CPU to 100%, and drags the whole thing down.
Oh yeah, gcc 4.6.2
