Hi Stepan,
Glad to know that you're developing  "Kontron 986LCD-M/mITX", and i'm trying to understand this excellent 986LCD-M board using Intel ICH7 as southbridge, i wanna create the bios image using Coreboot, but I even can't compile it after several tries.
My platform: 
Fedora 8 (Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP Tue Oct 30 13:55:12 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux)
Src code:
My steps: Reference to "http://www.coreboot.org/Kontron_986LCD-M_mITX"
1 Install "iasl" utility, and choose "filo" as the payload, and generate the "filo.elf" successfully.
2 ./buildtarget kontron/986lcd-m --> This will generate a new directory (naming "kontron_986lcd_m") where the key Makefile lies
3 Enter into the new dir, and copy the "filo.elf" to this new dir, but rename it as "payload.elf"
4 make -s --> This will fail, the message is as follows:
/workstation/bios/branches/coreboot-v2-newbuild/src/mainboard/kontron/986lcd-m/reset.c:25: warning: no previous prototype for soft_reset?
/workstation/bios/branches/coreboot-v2-newbuild/src/mainboard/kontron/986lcd-m/reset.c:30: warning: no previous prototype for hard_reset?
input/output = 302368/124894 = 2.421
/usr/bin/ld: coreboot: section `.id' can't be allocated in segment 1
/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [coreboot] Error 1
make: *** [fallback/coreboot.rom] Error 2
So, what is the problem? What kind of platform have you tried, Stepan?
Thank you.
ps: I also tried using "make menuconfig" "make" for the codes at "http://tracker.coreboot.org/trac/coreboot/browser/trunk/"
the same mistake occurred.
