Some of the newer compat modules, like svr4 and linux (others?) use a
different root for the emulation, like /emul/svr4 or /emul/linux. Would
it not make sense to do this for the other modules as well? Not only is
this good for consistency, but it also avoids some annoyances. For
example, with the sunos compat code one currently has to patch the sun
ld.so to look for libraries in a different location. if instead the root
was under /emul/sunos there would be no conflict.
