[Pixman] GCC_VECTOR_EXTENSIONS_SUPPORTED on 32 bits system

This is probably more a gcc issue and maybe I am not the first one 
reporting you the issue but a bunch of tests are segfaulting when 
building pixman 0.32.2. If I comment out the 4-5 lines of code in 
test/utils-prng.h defining GCC_VECTOR_EXTENSIONS_SUPPORTED, the 
segfaults goes away.

Fortunately, it only affects unittests but please consider the issue 
before expending the vector extensions usage to the lib itself.
