No, not a solution, but I tracked down the problem a bit:
nunki:~% cat x.s
class = dummy
nunki:~% as x.s
as: "x.s", line 2: error: symbol "dummy" is used but not defined

It is not a problem with the specific name as I originally thought, it's
just that this syntax per se seems to be a GNUism.
Which would be bug. Who exactly does generate this "class =" thingie? Do
we really need it? And why had that worked before?
If I just remove that "class =" line, everything assembles fine (though
I'd be quite surprised would this be an acceptable solution).
