Yes.  SeaBIOS or FILO would work fine.

1. svn co svn://coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk coreboot
2. make menuconfig
    select mainboard emulation qemu
    select payload (Add a payload)
3. copy FILO or SeaBIOS to coreboot/payload.elf
4. make

The build tutorials are hard to keep up to date.  If these steps work
for you, let us know.  If you have questions, I'll try to help.
