I was fiddling with elfutils and hit a trite buglet;
lib/eu-config.h defines OLD_VERSION with an equals sign in it (instead of .set)
the assembler I use has equals signs reserved for other uses (they're actually
part of the instruction set).
Using "=" for assigning symbols is normal gas usage. elfutils is not
normally tested with alternative assemblers. Which one are you using? I
am afraid there might be more places where we just depend on the
standard gnu tools. Although if you have a patch and it just works with
gas too then I don't mind adding it, but there are no guarantees it
keeps working because nobody is testing it.
