Sorry, it was not my intention to be obtuse.
I have two systems that are nearly identical, the HDs are cloned.  The only 
difference is one system has a Pentium III, 700 MHz that was recently replaced. 
 So the silicon is a higher rev. as well as the bios.
The application compiles just fine on the system with the older Pentium, but 
displays these errors on the one with the newer. 

My thought is that some system parameter, with a different value due to the 
newer Pentium, used during compilation is causing this.

Additional errors are:
{standard input}:173: Error: no such 386 instruction: `ja .L1606'

{standard input}:308: Error: no such 386 instruction: `ret'

While I did recognize that these are valid i386, my thoughts were that their 
format was invalid for an i386 assembler and valid for i586 or i686.

GNU assembler version 2.9.5 (i386-redhat-linux) using BFD version

Wish I could, this is a legacy system.  We have another; they have to be kept 
uniform.  No budget to upgrade and then rerun validation & verification.
