  I thought -yasmexe looks a bit confusing and users might
mistake it to be only working for "yasm.exe" on windows.

  I can understand that you rather not like this change and
that's fine. Therefore I put it as RFC and split it in a separate
commit. The diff could probably be minimized by making a copy of
yasm_prog variable named yasmexe. Maybe that would be a bit against
the configure conventions in respect to some(most?) other options.

  I can try to make it less invasive, if anybody besides me thinks
--yasmexe is not a good name and for a configure option and we can
settle on a better one.

  This option will be user visible and therefore I thought it ought
to be worth it, giving it a useful name hence it is not polite to
change it after it was in for a while.

  If others agree to stay with the name --yasmexe, this patch can
be safely dropped.
