Summary0000198: [bignums] compilation fails if "as" not available
DescriptionFull_Name: Judicael Courant
Version: 3.00
OS: SunOS sol 5.7 Generic_106541-04 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-4

Submission from: (

When trying to compile caml I did a
./configure -prefix /homes/courant/local/sun4

Then, "make world" complains that "as" is not found. I consider this is a bug
this should have been detected at configuration time. make world should not try
compile bignum if it can not succeed...
