Makes sense. If you get the Sun assembler to work, we should probably
make an autoconf test to check which assembler gcc is using. Heck, if
you find that Sun's assembler doesn't work, it would be nice to have an
autoconf check to put up an error. I don't know of a good way to do
this check (aside from testing whether it understands .previous).

Wine's README says:
You will most likely need to build Wine with the GNU toolchain
(gcc, gas, etc.). Warning : installing gas does *not* ensure that it
will be used by gcc. Recompiling gcc after installing gas or
symlinking cc, as and ld to the gnu tools is said to be necessary.
If you want to compile with the native assembler, you may be in
uncharted territory. I've had success with the combination of
binutils-2.14 and gcc-3.4.2.
