Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 442908
yaboot builds against binary copy of libext2fs.a

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #442904 +++
We don't build yaboot completely from source -- in versions <= 1.3.13, the
"source" tarball contains a prebuilt copy of libext2fs.a, which we were using.
Version 1.3.14 builds against the system's static libext2fs.a. That also
concerns me a little -- yaboot is far from being a standard environment; we
build with -nostdlib etc. But it seems to work.
