Yes, this has really nothing to do with 3dnow or sse. Probably it is
in newer ld, which for some reason don't like non-PIC code, making bad
shared library (even LD_PRELOAD cause segfault). My patch simply make
lpc_asm.o PIC, so this weird thing shouldn't happen now. My fault is
it wasn't done before as shared library is thought to be PIC.
