Thank you for the response Kevin. Correct me if I'm wrong but won't x86 binaries not work on an ARM system as ARM processors don't understand x86. 

I am attempting to get QEMU compiled and working on my ARM system and SeaBIOS is a dependency ‎for QEMU, hence my need to have the former compiled for ARM. Do you know if QEMU on ARM is okay with SeaBIOS' binaries being x86? If so, I think this will make things a lot easier for me. 

Kind regards
