THanks for the replies folks,

Yes, there was -DMMX defined in the Makefile, removing that fixed that issue.

I seem to be missing something in the build process. Is there a global config 
file that qmake uses to set these flags? i.e -DMMX -altivec etc
I am having to go through evey sub-directory and modify each Makefile to get
this thing compiled. I have edited config.mak before I did a qmake, but these 
x86 specifioc flags still exist.

Why hasn't ./configure picked up my platform properly anyway.
