This fixes a make -j problem with this port.  The newly built
assembler is used to assemble the overlay manager code, so we need
to ensure that the assembler is in fact built before attempting to
use it.  OK to apply to gcc and src repositories?

	* (serialization_dependencies): Make all-ld depend
	on all-gas for spu target in maintainer mode.
	* configure: Regenerate.
