I’m trying a build of LO on macOS using lode but get a warning message that yasm and nasm is not found

I have followed the instructions on the libjpeg-turbo to install using Homebrew, but that doesn’t help
(yes, yasm and nasm was installed a few months ago, so it is in my $PATH)

Anyone else having this problem?

checking whether the assembler (nasm -fmacho64 -DMACHO -D__x86_64__) works... no
configure: WARNING: installation or configuration problem: assembler cannot create object files.
You need yasm or nasm (Netwide Assembler) to build the internal jpeg library optimally.
To get one please:
