It seems to work okay for me.  What did you select in Kconfig, where
did you put the resulting out/vgabios.bin file, and what emulator are
you using?

Also, if using qemu/kvm add "-chardev stdio,id=seabios -device
isa-debugcon,iobase=0x402,chardev=seabios" to the command line and
post the resulting debug log.
