Yes, the reason for the different builder is that our bootloader is not in
ELF format. I'm not sure the linux ELF loader and my loader are going to
have much code in common, which is why I opted for a different builder.
However, I don't see major problems adding the code to the Linux builder, so
if that's what you prefer, that's how I'll do it.
