Only that we assume you *have* built the image in order to be able
to use the runqemu script. If you haven't, well, you won't
necessarily have some of the utilities the script looks for (e.g.
tunctl). When the script looks for TMPDIR it is not looking for a
temporary directory, it's looking for the TMPDIR that would have
been set in your local.conf.

The runqemu script just isn't designed to be used in the way that
you're trying to use it.
i gathered that. but is it unreasonable to suggest that this is
something that *should* be easy to do? if new users simply want to
see what a yocto-generated image looks like under qemu, shouldn't
there be a way to let them do that without going through an entire
