Ok, done it this way.

I think we should just remove the version number from as many pages as
possible... Updates to the wiki should rather reflect CBFS and Kconfig
for all the build tutorials. They are quite out of date since a few
revisions (many even still suggest to cat vgabios.bin coreboot.rom >
coreboot-with-vga.rom, which doesn't work since quite a while)...
Do you have a good hint for a build tutorial that works as a base for a
unified build tutorial? Or could you possibly work on such a tutorial?
With Kconfig being available everywhere, we should make sure people
recognize how simple it became to build coreboot
