Yes, I changed my build line in my (local) tenfourfox port to force the traditional gas assembler like this:

export CC="/opt/local/bin/gcc-mp-4.8 -Wa,-Q -flax-vector-conversions -O3 -m32 -read_only_relocs suppress"
export CXX="/opt/local/bin/g++-mp-4.8 -Wa,-Q -flax-vector-conversions -fpermissive -O3 -m32 -read_only_relocs suppress"
