Currently distributed as is from OpenSolaris build 121 and it is behind Oracle Solaris as. As the result, Studio 12.1 and newer is not usable for building Illumos because it produce assembler unknown to older as release.

as was distributed in binary form only, we should try to investigate possibilities for replacement.

Actually, GNU 'gas' from binutils replaces the Sun provided 'as' for x86/64.
Currently, binutil 2.23.2 provided as of 7/1/2014 (binutils 2.14.0-latest).
Since GCC is now the primary host compiler for x86/64 platforms, SS 'as' usage is no longer important.
