Ok, you pointed me in the right direction, after bisection I have a
successful make and a list of incompatible options. Since I also want to
compile undionly.kpxe Is there an macro I can use in an ifdef to ignore
inappropriate options like CONSOLE_PCBIOS and CONSOLE_VESAFB which of
course don't work and are not needed in snp but needed in undi?

Now on to the fun ones.

According to UEFI 2.0 (which I have not yet finished reading) much of pxe
is required to be implemented so PXE_CMD may be partially appropriate.

Now the hard ones.

I am building a menu system to allow diskless clients to boot linux,
windows, freebsd, and hopefully  plan 9 but all of the bootable image types
other than script and efi produce errors. so It would be very helpful to
IMAGE_NBI, and IMAGE_PXE would be nice, but are probably difficult.I have
no clue about IMAGE_SDI but it doesn't work either.
