Are you sure AS will actually be fixed?
Some people have been waiting since NeXt days!

True, and neither should we taint the source
just to accommodate Apple's broken old assembler.

There are other ways, though. We could check
for the broken AS version in the Makefile, and;

1) flag an error to the user,

2) default to an un-optimised C version,

3) copy a pre-assembled version to use,

4) download a working assembler,

et c.
