Thanks J for the comment.  Unfortunately, there is no easy way to share
files among different architectures' preboot environment.  We have the
choices either to have each architecture define its own copies or the
decompressor defines them.  I believe the former is preferable.  As
Lasse also pointed out, this way any specific architecture could provide
an architectural dependent optimized version, if it chooses to.
