I should have CentOS and Ubuntu available. One motivation for this is that I 
can't get the Neo qemu to build on either of my (mostly) stable Gentoo boxes, 
one x86 and one amd64. I suppose making a qemu-neo ebuild is an alternative. 
The build of the neo binaries seems to work fine, but without the qemu I 
can't test it.

Agreed. Especially as I have both Xen and qemu, but not VMware :-)
