I'm using nasm 0.98 and getting a crash when linking SDL

There is a bug in the binutils 2.13.90 shipped with some linux distributions (and in some MingW and cygwin distributions as well). You should upgrade your binutils to at least version 2.14. If for some reason you can't upgrade, you can workaround this problem by disabling the assembly code in SDL by passing "--disable-nasm" to configure when building SDL from source.
