I have.

Also, I would highly recommend the chroot environment--the kernel itself
supports i386 (even if it is natively x64), so a chroot will run at very
high speed.  I have successfully done this manuallly in the past, and
QuickBuild uses this method exclusively.

Any other architecture (ARM, etc.) will require virtualization.
