[flac-dev] remove src/libFLAC/ia32 permanently?

In my opinion, we should axe all pure asm implementations in
src/libFLAC/ia32 and the relevant configure options.
Reasons are simple:
- modern compilers plus the use of intrisincs make the code as faster
as possible, if you need maximum speed I suggest you to build with
profiling enabled. ;)
- there is no support for x86_64 (that is.. all modern PC ;-) ) or for
arm (most modern phones and media players)
- AFAIK, those assembler optimizations may be even slower than the C
code or buggy.
