aicasm shouldn't be used unless you are telling the kernel config that 
you want it to rebuild the aic7xxx firmware, and there's no reason for 
you to do that (the firmware files distributed in the kernel tarball 
should be fine). There's no way the standard kernel sources require any 
non-standard tools just to build the kernel, that would never get past 
Linus or Marcelo.
