So, for this to be workable, we'd need a canonical list of libraries that 
want/need SSE2 optimizations.

While on the topic, and looking at qtdeclarative's JIT on i686,

would a similar workaround suffice for libQt5Qml?  build a normal sse2/jit 
enabled version and stuff into LIBDIR/sse2 dir, and a non-sse2/jit into
