  One reason to use --disable-assembly is if the assembler invocations

  assembly source files. Resorting to gcc inline assembly (when using gcc)
  might be a less bad alternative for the common case of gcc.
I commited a fix.

The problem code is there just to test some GMP function's resillience
to rounding mode changes.  And it only works for the obsolete x87 insns
working off the floating-point stack.
