I disabled the special OpenBSD assembler handling.  It looks like
OpenBSD doesn't need it any more.

I'd appreciate it if anyone with an OpenBSD 3.3, 3.2, 3.1, or 3.0 box
could try the same patch and see what happens.  I'm not sure when
OpenBSD changed things, so it's difficult to write a proper fix for
the next version of GnuPG.
