I thougt somebody might like to know - I got a fresh copy of 4.04 from
http://www.kernel.org/ - when building on a 32bit system, the build
fails at first. I had to do a "make spotless" to get a successful

make[2]: Entering directory
./mk-lba-img lba.img
./mk-lba-img: ./mk-lba-img: cannot execute binary file
make[2]: *** [lba.img] Error 126
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/per/workspace/syslinux-4.04/diag'
make: *** [all] Error 2

./mk-lba-img is a 64bit executable, presumably left by a previous build.
