Comment (by X512):

 PowerPC BeOS binaries have non-elf format(binary start by "Joy!"), haven't
 they?

 Also it will be good if Haiku's runtime_loader could use dynamic
 translator if target and host architecture differs. Dynamic translator can
 be found in Qemu sources. For PowerPC it mostly don't have practical
 reasons, but when Haiku will be ported to ARM users could run x86
 binaries(from BeOS and new) on ARM tablets and smartphones.
