Commands such as:

 make installer

and/or :

 make bios installer

 make bios

seems to be working (at least for the binaries that I am able to 

In some low-resources systems, the difference between building:
_ only the installers or;
_ all binaries under BIOS,

can be relevant.

I want to remind you about a proposed patch (that was later recanted) 
related to this target:


Although Mr. Balducci recanted his proposed patch, there might still be 
problems with the "(bios) installer" target(s), considering that I am 
not using any kind of script other than the Syslinux code / make files 
(which apparently was the reported reason for retracting back the 
proposed patch) and it is failing for me.

Please review / test the available "make" targets, "make (bios) 
installer" in particular.
