[Pixman] [PATCH] configure.ac: Fail the ARM/iwMMXt test if not compiling with -march=iwmmxt

If not compiling with -march=iwmmxt, the configure test will still pass,
thinking that the __builtin_arm_* intrinsic is a function instead of
generating a single instruction. Since no linking is done, the configure
test doesn't catch this, and we get linking errors in the build.
