I cannot answer your posed question but... it certainly isn't an 1.x
version of gcc or something? :-)
Do you have a problem with inline assembler SSE2? Can you compile
SSE2-intrinsics code? To figure out, try this small snippet attached.
If it goes well then rewrite pixman using SSE2-intrinsics makes sense a
lot (if it already isn't), it turns code from "non maintainable" to
