In addition to fixing the typo to "You *may* work...", I suggest changing
the wording of the latter part of that sentence to one of the following,
since it is, at present, ambiguous:

  "...with that flag or by using the GNU assembler."

  "...with that flag or by not using the GNU assembler."

And, if you mean the latter, make sure it's clear to the reader (in context)
what specific other assembler should be used.

(My guess is, based on the context, that you mean the former.)
