NASM >= 2.16 is unuseable for DOS development

078ac416e4811d4f ac7134fc6c34222e e676a6b143232a57 f638c349b414e0e6 b25cc1129ce8293c bc9a49b88c1ea9f5 a8d5c26e0797bc6f 2eba886e5c7e366b
Bernd Böckmann pointed out to me that recent versions of NASM have an annoying bug:
> One note regarding the NASM package: In NASM >= 2.16 there is a bug in its OMF output module, rendering it nearly useless for DOS programming (at least if you are not outputting to plain binary). The bug is described here: So perhaps you consider to downgrading it to 2.15.5 until this bug is fixed, if nothing makes 2.16 mandatory.
The SvarDOS repo contains versions 2.12.02 and 2.16.01, so users have the choice. Some readme warning in the 2.16 package might be nice, though... Mateusz
