Hmm, does someone who knows more about the renderer think this would
help out Inkscape? Seems better than the MMX flag.

> Announcing liboil-0.3.0 - Library of Optimized Inner Loops
> Liboil is a library of simple functions that are optimized for
> various CPUs. These functions are generally loops implementing
> simple algorithms, such as converting an array of N integers to
> floating-point numbers or multiplying and summing an array of
> N numbers. Such functions are candidates for significant
> optimization using various techniques, especially by using extended
> instructions provided by modern CPUs (Altivec, MMX, SSE, etc.).
> This release represents a significant milestone in the liboil
> project. The sections of the ABI that are most interesting to
> developers are now considered to be stable, and will be stable
> throughout the 0.3.x and 0.4.x series.
> As of this release, I'm actively encouraging other open-source
> projects to begin using liboil. I'm happy to do much of work
> converting projects to use liboil, and especially, adding function
> classes and implementations to liboil that may be needed.
