The reason is that those Makefiles have been unmaintained for a long 
time now, and The Way To Do It[TM] should instead be to build syslinux 
out of its own box using klcc.

To do that, you have to run:


... from the main SYSLINUX Makefile.  This is perhaps a bit more clumsy 
than it should be and I probably should add a "make klibc" shortcut for 
the above in a future SYSLINUX release.
