simple_test26 is one of the regression tests.  In particular it
is a register pressure test and it only works when romcc has been
given the options to enable all of the registers.  You can use make -k
to get through all of the regression tests if you want.

You should not need to build romcc independently of LinuxBIOS right
now.  The normal build process should ensure it is build before you
need it.
