[coreboot] Building of payloads fails, SeaBIOS fails in qemu

according the first problem I've already created a ticket. I (and others
in IRC) failed building rom-images using nconfig+make with other
payloads than seabios. See the txt-files in the ticket system; make
reports something like: "Rule for filo unkown".

The second problem is that a self-build seabios doesn't boot in qemu
(again for me and people in IRC). While the default-qemu-bios boots any
diskimage just fine, -boot build/coreboot.rom causes seabios to start
fine (at first), too. But when it actually tries to boot from an image,
the errors: "Graphic initalization failed. Error setting up gfxboot.
boot: Could not allocate memory."

If I build a new virtual harddrive, install Ubuntu there (using qemu's
default bios) then I'm able to start the new image using my self-build bios.
