The environment and tools need not be the latest and greatest.
To test my answer I checked out coreboot-v2 and ran abuild.
5 fails due to:
make: iasl: Command not found
and the known via-cn failure.
(ok, so where do I find iasl?)

If you have a really old kernel chances are everything else is old, too.
So you might concider installing a somewhat newer distro.

Using built-in specs.
Configured with: ../gcc-4.1.2/configure --prefix=/usr --enable-shared
--enable-languages=c,c++,pascal --enable-threads=posix --enable-__cxa_atexit
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.1.2
Gnu pascal uses gcc's backend. As I recall from the pascal mailing list
there were some problems with the gcc-3.x series that went away when
gcc-4.1 came out.
Incidently, gcc-4.1.2 is the last GPL version 2 release.

GNU ld (Linux/GNU Binutils) 126.96.36.199.17.20070615
The assembler is in the binutils package.
Hope this helps,
