Currently the syslinux recipe set COMPATIBLE_HOST to 32/64-bit x86.
Whilst this makes sense for the target binaries as syslinux is
x86-specific, this also affects the native recipe which should be able
to be built on non-x86 build hosts (for example, arm64 build host,
qemux86 target).

syslinux itself has a somewhat fragile build system but with care it is
possible to build the installer for native/nativesdk, and the bootloader
for target.  Despite claims the documentation to the contrary, not all
of the bootloader is shipped precompiled in the tarball which does
complicate matters.

Something isn't quite right in this series:

https://autobuilder.yoctoproject.org/typhoon/#/builders/87/builds/1654/steps/14/logs/stdio

(and all the other selftests in that build)

Cheers,

Richard
