touch $DESTDIR/usr/lib/{crt0.o,crtbegin.o,crtend.o} did the trick
and I got ofwboot built, so somehow in *.mk there is a dependency from
those objs(they are not used in the build though).

Also I tried to boot 64bit kernel from using ufsboot,
no luck, the same Illegal Instruction. My attempts to check something
($r :s) kicked me back to firmware prompt.

Thank you, Eduardo for help,
