Removing the lines that start with "#" fixes the problem. I don't know what the correct start-of-comment character should be; the documentation I found says it should be "#" on i386 and ";" on ppc.

 I am unfamiliar with the platform and I don't know how this can be
fixed. Is that specific to leopard or assemblers in  all macosx
systems fail to compile it? Is there a comment symbol that can be used
reliably there?
