That's indeed a good remark.

FYI: the issue is that Solaris switched to Sun's asm which does have
different syntax than GNU asm. So to preserve compatibility with GNU or
not to preserve that is the question. :-)

Are the differences so hard?
Maybe the GNU assembler already has the support for Sun syntax?
Then it looks more like a GNU Binutils issue:

Differences are not so big but before putting this compatibility in someone always need to ask if this is not done for completely dead horse. Looks like it's not. :-)
