The requirement for gpxelinux.0 to support HTTP transfers is going to be
dropped in Syslinux 4.10, which is now on the release track.  Could you
test out pxelinux.0 (*not* gpxelinux.0) from Syslinux 4.10-pre15 and see
if you have any problems?

Other than that, it would be good to get a package trace
