You solved your issue? This means it is possible to run qemu on ec2? –  gideon Feb 10 '13 at 16:20

It looks like you are using the premade Amazon linux images. They trim many of the default CentOS libraries from their local repositories. You can manually add the CentOS repositories back in and it should help you find any missing packages.

name=CentOS-5 - Base
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=i386&repo=os
