[Pixman] [PATCH] Make sure iwMMXt is only detected on ARM

I'm not able to reproduce it, but I have two reports that iwMMXt is
incorrectly detected on x86 and amd64. This happens because it uses the
standard _mm_* intrinsic functions. It should fail on x86 and amd64
because configure will use -march=iwmmxt to compile the test, which
isn't a valid option on these platforms.

So, just #error out in the test if the __arm__ preprocessor directive
isn't defined.
