Following up on this, I now understand why I never hit the problem:
mattst88 at localhost ~/projects/pixman $ gcc -march=iwmmxt -march=native
iwmmxt.c:1:0: error: bad value (iwmmxt) for -march= switch
mattst88 at localhost ~/projects/pixman $ gcc -march=iwmmxt -march=k8 -c iwmmxt.c
mattst88 at localhost ~/projects/pixman $ gcc -march=iwmmxt -march=corei7
Apparently -march=native doesn't override previous -march flags, but
other values do.
