Well, `as' is distributed with FreeBSD.  `cc' changes C code to assembler,
and runs it through `as'.

You'll probably find that `as' isn't exactly what you wanted, though...
It's not your standard Intel-ish assembler.  You'll generally want to do
whatever in C.  Portable.  Probably gets optimized better.  Much more
normal.
