Presumably AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS() would work, but I don't know details.

I don't know of a good way to do that.

I've been cleaning up code in anticipation of a migration to Intel
assembler syntax.  Gas handles it just fine, so there's no reason
not to use it.  I'm considering adding a flag for which syntax to
generate, but the features/complexity ratio there is pretty low.

Of course, runtime code generation doesn't require an assembler.
