It looks like this patch is removing support for SSE2 which is probably 
needed for Windows. Isn't it a better idea to split the patch up in a 
windows specific part and MacOSX specific part? And then modify 
extras/contrib/src/Makefile to only apply the windows part when 
compiling for Windows. The same counts for the MacOSX part to only apply 
when compiling for Mac.
