For this step we need to modify tools/configure.
* select wanted target
* select simulator
* buildsystem needs now to generate a config-x86 on-the-fly based on
config-xxx of selected target.

But I am not a build system guru.. so somebody need to help out, if my
idea of a simulator is wanted and accepted by the community and the
developers.
