Good to know it has worked for you!

I am afraid no, at the moment classlib build does not support different
assembly compilers out of the box, so the NASM port really requires changing
makefiles directly. The sources have to be replaced as well for the same
reason, there are no places for different assembly sources in the current
classlib layout.

I think it will be improved when someone seriously tries to port classlib to
Cygwin on MinGW toolchain which will probably happen after native code is
restructured to modules. Then it will be possibly to improve every module
separately as Mark wrote recently.
