I'm mildly opposed to accommodating nasm. I promise not to ever test my 
code on nasm; someone else can notice and fix it if I happen to use some 
yasm syntax that nasm doesn't like again.
But if y'all think OS/2 is important, I won't grumble too much.

Btw, __OUTPUT_FORMAT__ is equal to the literal string passed to "-f", 
which thus treats "-f elf64" and "-f elf -m amd64" differently. This is 
relevant to a few lines in x86inc.asm.
