A few months ago I posted to the email list on this subject and gave the
correct way to do the call using bcc rather than bcc-cc1.  I just looked
at the current sources, and it appears that my change was made, but not
correctly, (and consequently Makefile) in the bios directory
should have a line that reads:

   bcc -o rombios.s -C-c -D__i86__ -0 -S _rombios_.c

the current file leaves out the "-C" (which must be right next to the
"-c") and the -S.  I believe the ordering of these options may be
critical as well.

This time I submitted a patch rather than just an email, so hopefully this
will get corrected (unless I screwed up the patch :-)
