I tried it in qemu, got confused by its own ipxe stack, but I

think it then went to isolinux which is from the ipxe.iso image...

I've silenced some other annoying warnings during the build, and
applied some of my suggestions from my previous mail (not all though —
please do send a V3).

This new patch has the following changes:

* used git-file-name

* build everything, as I didn't know what subset to choose

* install everything in ...-ipxe-1.20.1/lib/ipxe with subdirs

for per-arch binaries: bin-i386, etc. You spoke about lib

but put them in share, so I choose to change to the former

* do the install phase in scheme, as it was easier to handle

the above item than to generate a proper makefile target

* only install files with specified extensions, this will get rid

of the .a and other irrelevant files

Neither mtools nor XZ were ever used.  Why were they there?

I initially added the inputs in bulk from the build instructions

on the website, and forgot to check their usefulness before

sending the patch RFC.
