While attempting to build jack-audio-connection-kit
(both versions 0.101.1 and 0.102.20 downloaded directly
from SF, and Gentoo ebuild 0.101.1-r1), compilation
fails for port.c's MMX and SSE code.

Configure flags (based on Gentoo ebuild):
./configure --prefix=/usr --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu
--mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info
--datadir=/usr/share --sysconfdir=/etc
--localstatedir=/var/lib --disable-altivec
--enable-alsa --disable-capabilities
--disable-stripped-jackd --disable-coreaudio
--disable-debug --disable-html-docs --enable-mmx
--enable-oss --disable-portaudio --disable-sse
--with-pic --with-default-tmpdir=/var/run/jack
--enable-dynsimd --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu

Based on these flags, MMX code should be enabled and
SSE code should not. port.c compilation fails as follows:

Adding -mmmx to JACK_CFLAGS in libjack/Makefile
resolved the mm* registers; adding -msse resolved all
of the registers.

Also, having given --disable-sse, the SSE code should
not have been compiled.

    The attached patch to configure.ac fixes this issue for me.
    If --enable-dynsimd is set, enable-mmx and enable-sse are
    both set. This patch also moves the addition of $MMX_FLAGS
    and $SSE_FLAGS outside the enable-optimize test so they will
    be used even if enable-optimize is not set. This may not be
    the best approach, but I leave it to you as a start.

    Patch against configure.ac to force enable-mmx and enable-sse when dynsimd is enabled
