[LinuxBIOS] etherboot with LinuxBIOS

The easiest way to build Etherboot 5.2.6 is to use gcc 3.2.2.
I found another machine and built an old gcc and etherboot compiled.

I got errors with the new gcc, tried to fix them, but could never get it
to compile.  It would be good, if someone knowledgeable could make
etherboot work on the current gcc.

Steve - Did you ever find a resolution to this? I didn't see any
on the mailing list. I have the same toolchain as you, so if there's a
to avoid building another one just for Etherboot I'd like to know!
