I've been trying to get this to build on Fedora 18 on ARM to test the
UCM support and I'm running into an issue with what appears to be the
build ignoring the distro CFLAGS. Basically we don't currently build
for NEON as it's not guaranteed to be available on all platforms but
rather then rely on optimised code paths and run time detection for
NEON use.

I'm running into the following error where it's making an assumption
that NEON is there so trying to use it but as we're not using it the
build is failing.

Let me know if you need more information.
