Does GCC 4.0.2 on IRIX 6.x require GNU as?


According to http://gcc.gnu.org/install/specific.html#mips-sgi-irix6,
GNU as from GNU binutils 2.15 or later is required for debugging with
the O32 ABI. I'm building GCC 4.0.2 as follows:
  $ cd /opt/build
  $ bzip2 -dc /opt/src/devel/gcc-4.0.2/src/gcc-4.0.2.tar.bz2 | tar xf -
  $ mkdir gcc
  $ cd gcc
  $ /opt/build/gcc-4.0.2/configure --with-included-gettext \
  --enable-shared --enable-threads --enable-languages="c,c++"
  $ gmake bootstrap
  ...
  checking assembler for COMDAT group support... no
  checking assembler for COMDAT group support... no
  checking linker -Bstatic/-Bdynamic option... no
  checking assembler for explicit relocation support... yes
  *** This configuration requires the GNU assembler
  Bootstrapping the compiler

I don't really care about O32 but --disable-multilib disables O32 and
N64. Is the GNU assembler requirement above because O32 support is
enabled by default?
