It's usually much slower. I used that to build x86_64 RPMs for my repository,
and this takes 8 hours to build a package which builds in 10 minutes on my
native 32-bit hardware or 5 minutes on real 64-bit hardware. Building OO.o in
there would take days or even weeks. So unless you're talking about really slow
machines, which likely don't have the RAM to run Fedora properly anyway, QEMU
full-system emulation is not a solution.
