Works for me. Are you using the latest git version of nasm? There was
a recently fixed bug that affected compilation on some platforms,
including MSYS2.

MSYS2 accepted a pull request to upgrade nasm to 2.13.01 a few hours
ago, so it should probably show up on the package manager soon-ish.
Waiting for all major Linux distributions to provide 2.13 however
isn't realistic though because that may take years.
