I recently updated the DELQA module in the SIMH package.  All of the
NetBSD patches have been integrated, and some bugs were fixed.

FWIW, I'm now running SIMH on a 2GHz P4 Xeon system, and it is definitely
faster than my 4000/60.

...I'm currently using it to test Binutils and GCC ... the sources for
which live on an NFS server ... so I'd say the DELQA module is working
pretty well :-)
