Indeed, the reason that -msse* are there is because it's needed for
actually compiling the tests (because of the #include of the
intrinsics). But of course, -msse* has the side effect of (sometimes)
producing illegal instructions. We'll definitely need to fix this, but
I don't know how yet. In the mean time, you can either trust that the
library itself is correct, or compile without --enable-intrinsics
