There seems to be some issue with OFW, not sure about the others,
they're probably ok, but we should test that.

OpenBIOS is ok too, I tested with a manual build. It seems the problem
is with v2 boards doing nrv2b or no compression instead of lzma (which
we usually expect in buildrom), but that's for another patch.

Reattaching new patch for OpenBIOS, enabling the lzma option also.
I also added a check for 'detok' from fcode-utils, so the user is
warned if he doesn't have fcode-utils installed.
