[fpc-devel] QEMU for 64-bit FPC testing?

I don't own a 64bit pc. With the wonderful world of emulators and
virtual pc products like VirtualBox, VMWare and Virtual PC 2007 I
thought, why can't my 32bit Intel P4 emulate a 64bit CPU via software.
If it works, that would be cool. :) If it works it might be slow,
but I don't care, it's simply for testing purposes.
QEMU's wikipedia pages says that it can emulate the following CPU's
(listed below). Does anybody know if I can use QEMU on my 32bit CPU
to emulate the AMD64 so I can run 64 bit FPC? It's just a though, I
don't know QEMU really, just that it gets used inside the VirtualBox
Supports emulating IA-32 (x86) PCs, AMD64 PCs, MIPS R4000, Sun's SPARC
sun4m, Sun's SPARC sun4u, ARM development boards (Integrator/CP and
Versatile/PB), SH4 SHIX board, PowerPC (PReP and Power Macintosh), and
ETRAX CRIS architectures.
