It must be something with your local Linux configuration.  Normally
it should detect .globl as the asm global directive.  Check the output
of configure in the file config.log, maybe that helps.  If not have
fun ripping the configure script apart and see what goes wrong.

Can you compile (not link!) a tiny program like "foo(){}"?
