Looking into the mailing list archives, I found this thread: https://cmake.org/pipermail/cmake/2018-October/068332.html. When forcing the suggested correct file type
sourcecode.nasm, Xcode crafts a (wrong) build rule out of the blue and crashes because it doesn’t find Nasm at the expected location
Even further digging shows that
ASM_NASM may be poorly documented, and from a cursory look at cmGlobalXCodeGenerator.cxx I concluded that the build rule was simply never generated for this language.
Can someone confirm my suspicions? Would it be possible to fix the generator?
