There is a problem: the AC_CHECK_PROGS() just tests existence and I'm 
afraid both osx and linux/ppc have both as and gas executables.
running the configure as is will always turn on the "as" path.
--with-gas doesn't work to force it.
Probably a version check could help.

If you need access to a ppc linux box I could provide you an account on 
the pegII box I have at home, it isn't alwasy reachable since I didn't 
managed to set up a dyndns yet so you need to contact me (irc on freenode).
