This is not a problem for me. The reason I would like to get the
assembler, is simply to see if the compiler performs the optimizations
that I hope it would.
Vladimir, even though the assembler files are produced as side-effects
of a normal compilation, could the asm rule not simply be implemented
as this compilation + an additional deletion of all other files?
