[syslinux] Syslinux 6.03-pre7: EFI64 broken (Gene Cumm)

Where did you find the precompiled binaries for syslinux 6.03-pre7?

Actually, I'm interested in the pre-compiled binaries for syslinux

I went out to kernel.org, but the latest they have is 6.02.  Which appears
to have an endian problem in its TFTP client code (when syslinux.efi tries
to connect to the TFTP server, attempts to connect to UDP port 17664
instead of 69).    That's when using the pre-compiled 6.02 EFI64
syslinux.efi on Intel x86_64 processors.

This appears fixed in 6.0.3, so that's why I'm trying to find the 6.03
pre-compiled binaries.

Using both a disk load and netboot, the precompiled binaries of
Syslinux 6.03-pre7 for EFI64 appear broken.  Testing 6.03-pre6 on the
same system results in a successful boot.

This does not appear to affect the BIOS architecture and likely
affects EFI32 also.
