Yeah, that's why emulation might turn out to be easier in the long run.

This emulator:

http://www.scitechsoft.com/products/developer/x86_emulator.html

claims to be the one in XFree86 these days. Another emulation project
is bochs. It doesn't really matter if the performance isn't great
since the BIOS doesn't run for very long. But I think I'll have to dig
around a bit to figure out how well this works in practice.
