Provide static qemu builds for additional architectures beyond ARM

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2009-11-05

With the addition of qemu-arm-static it is easy to create a chroot for armel binaries on a i386 or amd64 host. This setup needs to be better integrated with debootstrap and should be enhanced to support other architectures like powerpc or mips.
