However, a user mentioned that he thinks all chips that fall into the amd64 architecture have SSE and hence adding -msse would be safe for the amd64 build. Is that correct? And in general are there any guidelines about things like this? I assume that using -msse for the i386 build is still out since we still support 486 chips.
AFAIK, the amd64 gcc enables those extension by default. Regards, Faidon
