Tested in a VirtualBox mga8-64 Plasma guest. Installed the packages, then updated using qarepo. No installation issues.

Found a test procedure way back in Bug 17887. Mgba is a GameBoy emulator, and needs a GameBoy ROM to work. Most of these ROMs are copyrighted, but there are supposed to be a few "homebrew" ROMs available for download that avoid that problem. 

I downloaded one that didn't appear to cross the line into copyrights. I opened the game, watched the intro, got to a point where some gameplay choices were to be made. I'm not really familiar with the GameBoy, but the emulator appeared to be working as designed.

Giving this an OK, and validating.Advisory in Comment 2.
