Set up QEMU deployment testing

completed by: Jacob B

QEMU provides virtual machine emulation for a number of different hardware configurations.  We want to set up a virtual BRL-CAD compile farm that uses QEMU.

This task involves setting up a QEMU image (say running Fedora, Ubuntu, or FreeBSD for starters) where we can log in and then check out, compile, and install BRL-CAD.

This is all entirely non-graphical, so you need to be adept at working with command-line tools, reading man pages, and navigating to complete this task successfully.



Document the steps you take to set up the environment and (separately) document the actions needed to do the BRL-CAD checkout/compile/install steps with your image.  This task will likely lead to many other follow-on tasks to create additional testing environments.
