IMNSHO, for the last few years Fedora has not been "the best" in 
maintaining the Syslinux-related packages.

OTOH, I just tested a very basic ISO image with the "6.04-0.12.fc30" 
binaries, and I am able to get to the ISOLINUX boot prompt. I have not 
tested anything else (not even isohybrid), but at least I can say that 
ldlinux.c32 loads as expected. IOW, I wasn't able to replicate the 
reported behavior; at least not in its most basic form.

For "news" since 6.03, see the unofficial temporal changelog in the 

At any rate, please remember _not_ to use official upstream 6.04-pre2 
nor 6.04-pre3.
