The originaly failing code Havard mentioned is a single file that is
compiled with sse2 support that optionally is selected at runtime when
the cpu can do sse2. Similar things happen for arm and neon (if I understood
the code correctly).

So it would need further testing, but it could be that the 
pkg still would run fine on 586 (like Geode based machines).
