[coreboot] making coreboot for Tyan s4882?

I recompiled a kernel that enables flashrom (normal kernels do, which is 
I guess why no one told me after I was asked about mine,) but I have had 
further problems.

I compiled grub2 for coreboot, and it says zelf payloads did not exist 
(I have read many posts on gmane that said that such zelf files 
specified in the make process are not even in the source: I saw none 
there.)  Then I replaced those with "payload 
/root/coreboot-v2-3923/coreboot.elf" in
/root/coreboot-v2-3923/targets/tyan/s4882/Config.lb.  Then at 
"/root/coreboot-v2-3923/targets/tyan/s4882/s4882#" make said:

"cp: missing destination file operand after `payload'."

I changed it to "payload ../../../coreboot.elf" in Config.lb (and copied 
that '.elf' to that path,) and it said:

objcopy --gap-fill 0xff -O binary coreboot coreboot.strip
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `../../../coreboot.elf', needed by 
`payload'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory 
make: *** [normal/coreboot.rom] Error 1
