Using GCC without the GNU assembler

Marcel Moolenaar reports

The 3 different assemblers that I know of do differ in subtle and sometimes hugely annoying and incompatible ways. 
The default output of GCC cannot be handled by the Intel assembler, nor the HP-UX assembler (both for different reasons).

Versions data:
        GCC 3.3.3
        Intel assembler v8.0U and v9.0U (beta)
        HP-UX assembler B.11.23

Thus, as this stage, you can not build GCC on IA64 with anything but the GNU assembler.
