You could downgrade your entire system to a seven-year-old distro; you 
would probably then be able to compile the seven-year-old code.

If you build iPXE with NBI support enabled (which is off by default), 
then you should be able to boot your existing thinstation images.  Other 
people may be prepared to help you use obsolete code; I'm afraid my only 
advice is going to be to use the existing code in which the problems you 
are experiencing have already been fixed.
