Yes, that should do it.  Except that x86_64 doesn't have support for
object splitting yet, so you need to add a file mk/build.mk with the


to turn off splitting.

For some reason that I don't quite understand, it seems from the error
message that you posted the compiler is attempting to generate code for
-split-objs, which is causing the assembler to fall over.  Turning off
splitting should fix that anyway.
