I'd agree with you if it weren't so damn difficult to get Qt to build with 
something else but Apple's compilers; xcrun is queried at several levels to know 
what command to use.

But what about the fact that that those intrinsics are still used even when 
configure is called with -no-sse4.1 and -no-sse4.2?
