All the i86 asm files:

>  	addl	$(Loop-L0-3),%eax

And config.links:

I think this solution is too simple and might break in other
envoronments.  When did Sun changed the syntax?  Is gcc able to cope
with that new syntax?  Is there an easy configure text to check
whether the new syntax is to be used?
