[coreboot] permissions error building external payload

Hi David,
  You need to add a rule to payloads/external/Makefile.inc as well.
Here's a start:

openbios: $(top)/$(DOTCONFIG)
  $(MAKE) -C payloads/external/OpenBIOS all \

You'll probably want to add some additional variables to configure
openbios to use the coreboot toolchain. All of the variables will need
to be exported or passed on the command line between
external/Makefile.inc and external/OpenBIOS/Makefile.

With your changes and the ones to Makefile.inc, I get to this point:
