This is on my todo list, however it is made a bit tricky because SeaBIOS
is quite picky about the compiler which is used (specifically the newest
SeaBIOS won't build on a Debian Stable system, which affects both me and
the Xen.org test system)

The solution will probably be to ship a binary and only rebuild when
explicitly asked to. I haven't quite got round to it yet though.
