[ipxe-devel] Build problems on Fedora 16/17 with current GIT

I've been trying to package ipxe for Fedora, to replace our gpxe packages.

Originally I was building from this commit:

  commit ffb6d6be6dc8b0b7f144ed7f6d40b537b4480295
  Author: Michael Brown <mcb30 at ipxe.org>
  Date:   Tue Mar 13 04:41:49 2012 +0000

but the build eventually fails with the following error

  [ZBIN] bin/168c0023.rom.zbin
  [ZBIN] bin/168c0024.rom.zbin
  [ZBIN] bin/168c0027.rom.zbin
  [ZBIN] bin/168c0029.rom.zbin
Add 0+0x126 at 0x2 overflows 1-byte field (19456 bytes too big)

make: *** Deleting file `bin/168c0029.rom.zbin'


The command I'm using to start the build is:


  ISOLINUX_BIN=/usr/share/syslinux/isolinux.bin
  cd src
  make %{?_smp_mflags} bin/undionly.kpxe bin/ipxe.{dsk,iso,usb,lkrn} allroms \
                   ISOLINUX_BIN=${ISOLINUX_BIN} NO_WERROR=1


(the %{?_smp_mflags} bit just expands to '-jNN' for number of host CPUs)


Updating to today's GIT, I now get an error much earlier in the build
process (so I suspect the original error is probably still there):

Looking at GIT history for the  bigint.h file, it appears this new error
entered the tree with:

  commit 071184a6e488f68b2b3149b801ab56e2b02cec3e
  Author: Michael Brown <mcb30 at ipxe.org>
  Date:   Tue Mar 13 16:35:21 2012 +0000

    [crypto] Add big-integer library for RSA calculations

My toolchain is

   GCC  4.7.0-0.19.fc17
   BinUtils 2.22.52.0.1-10.fc18

and the build host architecture is x86_64

Any suggestions on how to address this would be appreciated, because we
really want to switch from gpxe to ipxe

FYI, in case it helps, I have full build logs available, for the first
overflow error:

   http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=3909597&name=build.log

and for the bpl error:

   http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=3909581&name=build.log

Regards,
Daniel
