> sudo apt-get install bison flex libarchive-dev
> svn co svn://svn.riscos.info/gccsdk/trunk/tools/asasm
> # at this point, edit src/output.c to insert #define ELF_EABI
> autoreconf --install
> ./configure --target=arm-linux-gnueabihf
> make
> DESTDIR=/usr/local/bin sudo make install
> It might be worth us getting this set up as a package for Raspbian, and
> maybe upstream it even further to ARM Debians in general? At the moment, the
> CMake makefiles I've written assume asasm is available if you're targeting
