I think that other efi binaries like elilo.efi usually live in
/usr/lib64/efi, so perhaps in the short term there should just be an
explicit EFIDIR variable in xen/Makefile. Ultimately I think that
LIBDIR should follow the ./configure --libdir setting, which would
land the efi binaries in the wrong place.
