 Forgot to add that some packages reference alternatives - usually
in optional deps, but not always.   libjpeg-turbo can again build
with either NASM or yasm :

    <para role="required">
      <xref linkend="NASM"/> or <xref linkend="yasm"/>

 I suspect that anything parsing that will probably decide to build
both these assemblers.  That should be ok.
