coreboot has no end of problems with all distribution toolchains. It
is recommended to use a vanilla toolchain with known-good component
versions for building coreboot whenever coreboot is acting up - I
think it might be a good idea to do so for SeaBIOS as well.

You could use the script coreboot/util/crossgcc/buildgcc to create
a toolchain.

Kevin, is there a problem with using a non-linux toolchain, ie. one
for i386-elf?
