Thanks for providing the link.

I'm not sure what license that is/if it is compatible with GPLv2. Can
someone provide guidance on what to update in QEMU's license? I am not
too familiar with all this license stuff.

Regarding building for iOS, as Balaton said it is possible with an OSX
host. However, it does require some work to set up all the right
environment variables (Apple does not follow standard conventions for
cross compiling). You can see the build script we use for UTM:

However, a lot of the changes does work on other platforms
(libucontext and bulletproof (mirror mapped) JIT are two major ones).
We used iOS build to guard these features because they are only useful
for iOS, but we can make it a configure option if that's desired?
