Just an attempt to "keep it all together" (Nigel Croxon doesn't seem to 
be "connecting" the following first 2 items):

_ "syslinux fails to build: multiple definition of `memset'", from 
Joakim Tjernlund,

_ "jmp_buf definition violates C standard", from hpa,

(and one additional item that _maybe_ has some kind of influence?...)
_ "Add -ffreestanding to compiler flags", from David Woodhouse
