Stefano Mazzocci had this working in the past and Joe Schaefer tossed

Given the choices of VMs infra could give us most easily it probably
comes down to Ubuntu (10.4) on VMWare or a FreeBSD jail.  I'm not sure
how stable you consider the FreeBSD port of Harmony to be, would it be
better to opt for the VMWare instance?  It would be a 64Bit system in
either case.
