As this doesn't compile the vgabios files, it will cause a mismatch (the opposite way around this time) when used with QEMU. QEMU2.0.0 includes the 1.7.4 version of:

bios.bin (side note: this is the 128k version, missing USB I think)

So once this package goes live, users will have a 1.7.5 bios, with a 1.7.4 vgabios (if the above files are not made part of this package).
This task depends upon

Hi Tom,

If you would like some help with this, please just ask - I already have it all scripted and am more than happy to provide it for you to review/implement.

Adding the qemu maintainer since this affects him, too.
