Is 'GNU AS' not part of cygwin/mingw distri?
Which assembler is used depends on boost.build. I don't know an option
to force boost.build to use a specific assembler tool.
I assume boost.build chooses 'MASM' as assembler on Windows - the
boost.build 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 boost.build
