OSNews, Generic OSes "Bill Buzbee offered the first public demonstration of the Minix OS - a cousin of Linux [I beg your pardon?] - running on his homebrew minicomputer, today at the Vintage Computer Festival in Mountain View, Calif. Magic-1, built with 74-series TTL ICs using wire-wrap construction, implements a homebrew, 8086-like ISA."

Although, I must say, if I went about a project like this, I would start with a Xilinx Spartan fpga development board and code up the microprocessor in Verilog.

Might be less "homebrew" that way, though.
