Is 'GNU AS' not part of cygwin/mingw distri?

Which assembler is used depends on I don't know an option
to force to use a specific assembler tool.
I assume chooses 'MASM' as assembler on Windows - the docu makes no statement in this case :/

Supporting another assembler tool requires only to transform from 'MASM'
syntax to 'NASM'/'GNU AS' which should be an easy task.
- but all depends on
