As far as I know, iPXE is not an EFI program, but a [great!] project 
with a source code base.  Particular iPXE build targets might be EFI 
programs.  I think some recent discussion in this thread was in regards 
to non-EFI build targets.  It's possible that the discussion is not 
applicable for the ipxe.efi binary, for example.  I could be mistaken.
