Ok, finally found the time.
With "DEBUG=script" last line in syslog is:

ipxe: [0204] $ # fall back to menu if this fails

After the corresponding comment the configuration file contains:

menu iPXE: ${manufacturer} ${product} (${ip} / ${mac})

Anything more I can try?
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
