syslinux-4.04.lsm says:

Platforms:      DOS, Win32/64 or Linux to install.  Linux, perl and NASM 2.03 or
                later required to build from source.

but you were somehow able to build without NASM, right?  Is NASM
required for some optional components only?  Or are there precompiled
object files?

I haven't checked yet.  I am already a bit scared by the size of
syslinux, though - the source tarball is over 4 MB under .tar.xz, and it
uncompresses to over 20 MB.  Much of the size is in NIC drivers, which
may be reasonable, though.
