The menu wont compile for me, the version in 2.09 does compile.

~/syslinux-2.10-pre2/menu$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.3.3 (Debian 20040401)

~/syslinux-2.10-pre2/menu$ make
gcc -m32 -funsigned-char -g -W -Wall -march=i386 -falign-functions=0 -falign-jumps=0 -falign-loops=0 -Os -MMD -S -o biosio.s biosio.c
biosio.c: In function `scrollup':
biosio.c:141: error: invalid lvalue in asm statement
make: *** [biosio.s] Error 1
