I would suggest not attempting to include all ROM images within an iPXE 
package.  I would expect a package to include only those binaries that are 
likely to be generally useful to a large number of users, such as 
undionly.kpxe, ipxe.iso, and possibly the ROMs used by common virtualisation 
products.  It might also be useful to have things like a dhcpd.conf fragment 
that defines the iPXE-specific options, and possibly sample booting
