In the tools part of xen, if you have bcc installed, 'make tools'
will try to compile all of the x86 firmware (ACPI, ROM BIOS, VGA
BIOS).  This patch turns that off if we're building for ia64, where
we don't really need it (yet).  It may be necessary to turn this off
for PowerPC, too, but I don't have one of those to test on.

Tested with 'make tools' on ia64 Debian GNU/Linux (unstable)
