Including details is nice and helpful, just don't expect everyone to
digest all of the details at once. If I spot a single small problem in
what you report, I might be able to provide some help on that, even if I
don't have a good idea of the big picture.

I'll try to clarify. The Makefiles are expected to run roughly the two
m4 ... foo.asm > foo.s
$(CC) ... foo.s -o foo.o
for each used .asm file. If you observe make trying to run
$(CC) ... foo.asm -o foo.o
instead, then you have found a severe Makefile-related problem. "can
only be preprocessed with gcc" sounded like you expected the above
incorrect command to somehow succeed in case CC=gcc, and break only if
gcc is replaced by Oracles compiler. But it's broken regardless of
compiler; the separate m4 step is always required.
