[LinuxBIOS] Patch file for Fedora 8 compile problems

How about my awk script I sent out that uses the output from ld --help 
to see if buildid is and option.  This handles the different distro  

If I can get some time,  I will put together a patch file with the 
changes to buildtarget to create a makefile.distro using awk to test ld 
for the buildid option.
