The last sentence there also make the assumption that build machine ==
running machine (if it were to look at lscpi).

I really do not know enough to comment here but seeing as that doesn't
usually stop me.... Can the xvmc stuff be compiled in such a way as to
always work with the different systems and allow the user to select at
runtime (or autodetect at runtime)? This would make things better for
distributions building the code and shipping it out to multiple
different machines/configurations.

Perhaps this is the whole point of xvmcw tho' right?
