[mythtv] automatic CPU detection

it seems that automatic CPU detection code is built into myth
but nevertheless the code is ifdef'd in a lot of places for things like MMX

would it make sense to replace these compile time tests with a runtime check
on invocation and then appropriate if/then/else code

assuming that i have this right - is this something that is planned?

i currently run mythtv on a VIA C3, a Pentium III and shortly on an Athlon
being able to build once would be "a good thing"

also; is it possible/feasable to implement deinterlacing on a C3
right now it seg faults
the investigation of this led to the above questions about MMX

i *can* work my way around the code - so if deemed appropriate
i'll have a go at making the code dynamic
