One (or more) of the packages I have installed needs nasm. If nasm is present
on the system, configure tries to get it's version. Because of the broken
check (see the first until loop in work/mpeg4ip-1.6.1/util/, it
goes into an endless loop if nasm is present, but does not accept -r (based on it seems older
versions of nasm used -r to acquire it's version).

I'm unable to find any useful info on this (but I also have to admit that I
didn't spend more than a few minutes on researching this) ... maybe some
