h8300-hms is an alias for h8300-coff.  The h8300-coff gas support was
removed in August last year, because it was a very old port that was
never updated to meet current binutils standards, and the cost of
maintaining it wasn't worth the effort anymore.  (For you binutils
folks, it was one of the non-BFD_ASSEMBLER ports.)

h8300-elf is still supported.  Perhaps you can use that instead?

Unless someone volunteers the time or money to re-implement the
h8300-hms gas port correctly, you will probably have to stick with
binutils-2.16, which is the last binutils release that supports it.
