Fcode was not required to build the pieces I'm building so far. This is the
reason I have not included it. But I can happily shoot a FCode package if you
really feel necessary.

As for the binaries, nobody likes them. Your suggestion in vgabios was totally
welcome and accepted. But in that case, dev86 was compiling everything. In this
package, (as well as bochs-bios and etherboot), gcc is doing a big part of the
job. By purely gcc suckiness, we can't easily generate code for alternate
platforms other than native.

So I'm afraid we do have to build once, and then pack binaries in the way we
did for etherboot. Please take a look at that package review for more
