ok, so no ipxe on arm, right?
Not yet atleast.

What is the point of this?
If the Pi is the only device available that runs linux and you need to compile ipxe, lets say to enable debuging, then running the compile on the ARM cpu might be an option.

mcb30 might have looked at this but have not seen any work so far.
Assuming that ARM runs EFI (to avoid the assembly part needed otherwise) it might not be that hard but still needs some platform specific handling.

One way to start is to make sure mcb30 have the needed hw to test on and develop against.
