Don't do that.

Ffmpeg (and therefore the GStreamer-ffmpeg plugin) will at runtime
detect the optimizations that your cpu supports. Therefore, the use of
anything like -mno-sse is not needed. There's specific autoconf magic to
turn it off if you really want to, read ./configure --help for details.
If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it. And please, for
Gentoo-specific questions (which this is definately one of), use the
Gentoo fora. This list is for GStreamer-related issues.
