The DJGPP FAQ list (v2/faq211b.zip from the same place you get DJGPP)
answers these questions in sections 17.1 and 17.2.

DJGPP doesn't use NASM, it uses Gas, the GNU assembler, which accepts
the AT&T style.  The reason is history: the AT&T style predates the
Intel's, and is supported by other architectures as well.
