Do not enable IMAGE_EFI when building a non-EFI version of iPXE. 
There's no way to load an EFI binary on a non-EFI platform anyway, so it 
makes no sense to ask for IMAGE_EFI support.

IMAGE_EFI is enabled by default when building EFI versions of iPXE. 
There should never be a need to explicitly enable it.
