Update to version 0.98.35.

Suggested by Juan RP <juan at xtraeme dot dyndns dot org> in PR pkg/19841.

- HOMEPAGE has changed
- nasm now has GNU autoconf configure script


* NASM is now LGPL.

* Fix build failure on 16-bit DOS (Makefile.bc3 workaround for compiler bug.)
* Fix dependencies and compiler warnings.
* Add "const" in a number of places.
* Add -X option to specify error reporting format (use -Xvc to
  integrate with Microsoft Visual Studio.)
* Minor changes for code legibility.
* Drop use of tmpnam() in rdoff (security fix.)

* Correct additional address-size vs. operand-size confusions.
* Generate dependencies for all Makefiles automatically.
* Add support for unimplemented (but theoretically available)
  registers such as tr0 and cr5.  Segment registers 6 and 7 are called
  segr6 and segr7 for the operations which they can be represented.
* Correct some disassembler bugs related to redundant address-size prefixes.
  Some work still remains in this area.
* Correctly generate an error for things like "SEG eax".
* Add the JMPE instruction, enabled by "CPU IA64".
* Correct compilation on newer gcc/glibc platforms.
* Issue an error on things like "jmp far eax".

* New __NASM_PATCHLEVEL__ and __NASM_VERSION_ID__ standard macros to
  round out the version-query macros. now understands
  X.YYplWW or X.YY.ZZplWW as a version number, equivalent to
  X.YY.ZZ.WW (or X.YY.0.WW, as appropriate).
* New keyword "strict" to disable the optimization of specific
* Fix the handing of size overrides with JMP instructions
  (instructions such as "jmp dword foo".)
* Fix the handling of "ABSOLUTE label", where "label" points into a
  relocatable segment.
* Fix OBJ output format with lots of externs.
* More documentation updates.
* Add -Ov option to get verbose information about optimizations.
* Undo a braindead change which broke %elif directives.
* Makefile updates.

* Fix NASM crashing when %macro directives were left unterminated.
* Lots of documentation updates.
* Complete rewrite of the PostScript/PDF documentation generator.
* The MS Visual C++ Makefile was updated and corrected.
* Recognize .rodata as a standard section name in ELF.
* Fix some obsolete Perl4-isms in Perl scripts.
* Fix to work with autoconf 2.5x.
* Fix a couple of "make cleaner" misses.
* Make the normal "./configure && make" work with Cygwin.

* Correctly build in a separate object directory again.
* Derive all references to the version number from the version file.
* New standard macros __NASM_SUBMINOR__ and __NASM_VER__ macros.
* Lots of Makefile updates and bug fixes.
* New %ifmacro directive to test for multiline macros.
* Documentation updates.
* Fixes for 16-bit OBJ format output.
* Changed the NASM environment variable to NASMENV.

* Changed doc files a lot: completely removed old READMExx and
  Wishlist files, incorporating all information in CHANGES and TODO.
* I waited a long time to rename zoutieee.c to (original) outieee.c
* moved all output modules to output/ subdirectory.
* Added 'make strip' target to strip debug info from nasm & ndisasm.
* Added INSTALL file with installation instructions.
* Added -v option description to nasm man.
* Added dist makefile target to produce source distributions.
* 16-bit support for ELF output format (GNU extension, but useful.)

* Fastcooked this for Debian's Woody release:
  Frank applied the INCBIN bug patch to 0.98.25alt and called
  it 0.98.28 to not confuse poor little apt-get.

* Reorganised files even better from 0.98.25alt

* Prettified the source tree. Moved files to more
  reasonable places.
* Added script to misc/ directory.

0.98.8 - 0.98.25
