gas or any other assembler that supports local labels.  This is the
desirable solution.  We can then #ifdef the code with something like
ASSEMBLER_SUPPORTS_LOCAL_LABELS (preferrably a less ugly name, though)
and check for this in configure instead of conditionally compiling based
on the detected operating system, which may or may not support the
desired feature in any particular custom configuration.
