The "as" binary that you downloaded is an ia64 binary.  You don't want
that because running "as" under the simulator would be too slow.
Someone would have to build a cross-version of "as" for NUE.  It
should be just a matter of (a) downloading the latest binutils
snapshot onto an x86 machine, (b) configure it for target ia64-linux,
(c) build it, (d) copy resulting as-new into NUE (it's best to link
as-new statically, to avoid shared-library dependency issues).  If you
(or someone else) does that, I certainly would be happy to host the
x86-binary of the fixed ia64 assembler on
