I have used the option "--enable-targets=all". If this doesn't work why
should the sub-set work? I've tried your suggestion nonetheless but it
didn't produce an objcopy with the desired support.
What does your "objcopy --help" say?

objcopy: Unterstützte Ziele: elf64-x86-64 elf32-i386 elf32-iamcu

I think EFI x86-64 is supported.  Why do you think it isn't supported?

I quote the README from gnu-efi:

.......... quote begin ............

- A version of "objcopy" that supports EFI applications.  To
      check if your version includes EFI support, issue the

        objcopy --help

      Verify that the line "supported targets" contains the string
      "efi-app-ia32" and "efi-app-x86_64" and that the "-j" option
      accepts wildcards.

............ quote end ............

That's why I assume that it's not supporting it.

Kind regards
