forwarded 379497 email@example.com
jpeg-xmms fails to build from source using gcc 4.1:
> gcc -O2 -I. -c -o fdctdata.o fdctdata.c
> gcc -O2 -I. -c -o jquant_x86simd.o jquant_x86simd.c
> /tmp/ccT4Nyhx.s: Assembler messages:
> /tmp/ccT4Nyhx.s:59: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `ldmxcsr'
> make: *** [jquant_x86simd.o] Error 1
> make: Leaving directory `/build/buildd/libjpeg-mmx-0.1.5'
various other vendors like gentoo already use a slightly modified patch
from the following bugreport filed against gcc:

full bugreport (also with some ways to fix this issue) in the Debian Bug
I'am no ASM/SSE Expert, so i think it would be best if you guys could
have a look at the patches provided in the above link and could tell me
if its safe to include them in the package.
