I usually make sure MokoMakefile builds on Debian Etch and CentOS 4.

A long term support version of Ubuntu would also be suitable I expect
(i.e. *don't* choose an _unstable_ version of Debian or Ubuntu or Gentoo).

In previous discussion with some members of the OpenMoko core team about
this issue, there was a clear direction from them that OpenMoko would
not be officially releasing or supporting a VMware image because you
needed proprietary software to run it.  So a qemu or xen image would be
in keeping with that spirit.
