	GAS does have some limitations with respect to XCOFF support
including the problem with included files which you mention, but I do not
understand why that is important enough to disable the AIX XCOFF
configuration of GAS.  Some support is better than no support: IBM XAS still
is distributed with AIX 4.1 so one can use that if one encounters the
debugging information limitation.
