Well, I know that Gary Kacmarcik wrote one back in the early 90s,
and also wrote a book, Optimizing PowerPC code. I don't recall if
the book had a CD, or if the CD had his emulator, but it might be
worth checking it out.

Otherwise, the emulator MIGHT be available on an old MacHack
conference CD (where he first presented it). For more information,
you should see:


<http://www.machack.com/> or, as it is now known,
<http://www.adhocconf.com/>


Hope this helps.
