I think the best thing is to add this until all code depending on this
is removed.

This is just copied from i386-pc.rmk.  I assume there was a good
reason for this so I copied this.  Please leave it there unless there
is a good reason to remove it or Okuji says it is not required.

This is a stupid copy-paste mistake from me.

The problem I talked about is that COMMON_ASFLAGS is not used.  You
are right genmk.rb might need to be fixed, I do not know.  But using
pkgdata_IMAGES would be the right thing to do, AFAIK.  The best thing
to do is fixing both issues.
