   Hmm.. What about a context dependent symlink that sent /e to
   the appropriate /emul/foo dependent upon executable format (ugh?)

no, i was wrong... (as cgd pointed out)

you have the sunos /usr/lib installed under /emul/sunos, and make
the emul code look in here.. /emul/sunos becomes an "alternate"
root directory, basically..
