Speedup on Pentium 4

I've commited code to speed up the performance of multi-precision integer multiplication on processors which support SSE2 instructions (i.e. Intel Pentium 4).

The speedup is about 2x on my test platform, a Pentium 4 Mobile 1700.

To enable these on Linux/Un*x, use the --enable-sse2 switch with the configure command.

For the win32 platform, see file Makefile.mak - you have to add switch /DOPTIMIZE_SSE2 to ASFLAGS.
