I have gone this way. Well, everything (including emulators/wine) compiles
and installs fine, but i386-build of a wine does not work inside i386-jail
hosted on amd64 machine. I don't remember exactly what happens on start,
segment violation or something like this, with core dump.
I think wine requires rather tight co-operation with the kernel and
it is not possible to launch i386-wine on amd64 this way.
And you cannot load 32-bit nvidia.ko with amd64 kernel, if I'm not missing
some new functionality.?
