I think I see the issue here. Are you running with i486 as an arch?
This is a deficiency of the OVMF support, because it has some wrappers to build appropriately the firmware which are OS and architectures specific and it does support Linux-i686 and Linux-x86_64 but not Linux-i486.
I'm not sure about what we should do here, possible options include:
- Verify that, on all i486,i586,etc. we can eventually use i686 and unify the script to do that - Check if it is possible (it doesn't seem to be already present, but I will dig further) if we can "cross-compile" the compiling OS and family and use a mechanism to offer that

In any case we should check for the presence of the right wrapper and skip ovmf, spitting out an informative error, if this is really the case.

Do you have feedback on the matter?
