I tested many different combinations and i could not find any errors in compiling or running SeaBIOS.
Note that when I run SeaBIOS thats with coreboot on a PIII, I440BX, 83371 hardware (Nokia-IP530).

Can you tell me why the SeaBIOS code keeps all its functions even when there are not needed?
Would it nicer to exclude whole pieces of code that are not required?

You're right and it was easier than i expected :-)
I removed the "depends" from the Kconfig file. and that solves most of the errors.

i'll will continue testing it but I cannot test it all.

Here is the new Kconfig file for testing, I hope that you have some time too for testing this.

No. No.  Kconfig must change to seabios; seabios source code should
not change to use kconfig.
