i'm getting offtopic here, but gas uses the mechanism with the nearest
labels, but when you branch you have to specify wether the assembler has
to look for that nearest label forwards or backwards (that is, down or up
in the source). this fixes the same distance problem.

dasm's mechanism is still better =)
