[syslinux] compiling pxelinux in elf

I have used pxelinux successfully in some situations.

However, I am unable to boot IBM NetVista thin clients using pxelinux.
The kernel that does boot up these thin clients over the net is in elf
format (it is called kernel.2200).

# file kernel.2200
kernel.2200: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), 
statically linked, not stripped

So, I would have liked to compile (assemble) pxelinux in elf format.
A simple change of "-f bin" to "-f elf" in the command line to assemble
does not work (errors are thrown up).

What to do?
