[syslinux] [PATCH v2 0/4] Allow cross-building of syslinux

Hi together,

this is the second version of my cross-compilation patch serie. I'm sending it in the hope to get an honest review, and possibly see the patches integrated upstream.

Those patches allow to build syslinux using a toolchain different from the host one by explicitely using the host toolchain for the utilities that are required at build-time / on the build machine.

I am using the XX_FOR_BUILD environment variables for that, which is a common practice for projects using autoconf.

Those patches are originally written for the buildroot project, and you can browse them anytime on the project repository [0]. Until a release come out that render them useless of course.

Best Regards,

  memdisk: Force ld output format to 32-bits
  utils: Use the host toolchain to build.
  lzo: Use the host toolchain for prepcore
  efi/wrapper: build it with the host toolchain.
