Thanks, one patch less in the pkgsrc collection.

Yes, on i386, but named a bit differently:
$ /sbin/sysctl -a|grep sse
machdep.sse = 1
machdep.sse2 = 1

The sysctl MIB constants are CPU_SSE and CPU_SSE2.

On amd64 there is no such thing, sse2 is assumed.
Please tell me if you need something tested.

best regards
