The command I am using is-----
Code:
make bin-x86_64-efi/ipxe.efi

it comes with an error-----
Code:

What configuration changes have you made, and have you tried to compile with a clean checkout?

> undefined reference to `__xpg_basename'
Google tells me it is a libc refererence issue, which libc is used on this system?
