I think that something like qemu-system-arm is probably one of the
very few ways of speeding up package builds while still being able
to guarantee that the result is 100% identical. (Although my
fastest ARM boxes are probably faster than doing it via qemu.)
Looking at the speeds of your boxes you posted in another mail in this thread,
they almost definitely are. Building in QEMU emulation is about 50 times slower
than native builds.
