Compile flags for hmmer


Still about the compiler flags for hmmer (#594860), on i386 [1] and
kfreebsd-i386 [2] it's being used the SSE implementation (compiled
with -msse2).

While it's almost sure that people who use hmmer have processors >=
Pentium 4 and Athlon 64, there is still a small probability that some
users won't be able to run hmmer on i386 and kfreebsd-i386.

While the generated code is faster with SSE, Debian still supports
older Pentiums and 486s [3].

Will we let it being compiled with for processors that support SSE only?
