Thanks for response. Following are specific change I'm talking about. Compilers are not expected to create .rodata.str1.1, .rodata.__func__ and .rodata.__PRETTY_FUNCTION__. If compiler decide to use some other .rodata__ suffix name in place of __func__, __PRETTY_FUNCTION__ or str1.1, it breaks the compilation.
As you can see someone already taken out that check from SeaBios mainline, but 126.96.36.199 still has. As a result of this assumption, whenever I try to build SeaBios with Intel Compiler it Fail because Intel compiler uses some other character in place of __PRETTY_FUNCTION__ and __func__. It will be great if you can incorporate this fix in released version.
Layoutrom.py file check for
From SeaBios mainline (layoutrom.py):
180 rodatasections = getSectionsPrefix(sections16, '.rodata')
193 rodatasections = getSectionsPrefix(sections32seg, '.rodata')
From 188.8.131.52 (layoutrom.py):
178 rodatasections = (
179 getSectionsPrefix(li.sections16, '.rodata.str1.1')␊
180 + getSectionsPrefix(li.sections16, '.rodata.__func__.')
181 + getSectionsPrefix(li.sections16, '.rodata.__PRETTY_FUNCTION__.'))
194 rodatasections = (
195 getSectionsPrefix(li.sections32seg, '.rodata.str1.1')
196 + getSectionsPrefix(li.sections32seg, '.rodata.__func__.')
197 + getSectionsPrefix(li.sections32seg, '.rodata.__PRETTY_FUNCTION__.'))

Can you post the error that you are seeing?
We just tagged rel-184.108.40.206 and it included all the build bug fixes that I know of. There are changes to scripts/layoutrom.py between
rel-220.127.116.11 and the current master branch, but none of those changes were thought to be bug fixes.
PS - please post in just plain text (no html) in the future.
