 Yes, we have #18691 for that issue (although we might want to switch to
 Jessie while we are at it). For now it is faster just to add Yasm 1.2.0
 support, though, I think. We need to get nightly builds going ASAP. I am
 fine if we try switching away from 12.04 latter in the alpha cycle.

 Because the idea was to keep the version diff as small as possible to
 avoid possible issues with a version that is "too new".
