The problem is indeed with your toolchain. I strongly recommend that
you run make crossgcc in the top level coreboot source directory,
which will then build a reference toolchain with known working
components. The toolchain should be discovered automatically by the
coreboot and SeaBIOS build systems. You can verify this by cat:ing
the .xcompile file in the root source dir.
