This is a dilemma configure is not yet smart enough to do this kind of 
detection with sse and older kernels and  kernel patch level less 
112234-12 will crash vlc when playing movie if sse is used.
One approach that for configure has is to compile and execute code 
snippet with sse and check result as it is done in mplayer configure.
However sse gives better performance and are a reason to upgrade there
