The patch only affects optimization flags used when compiling
checksum.c, so it should have no effect on other areas of the code.

If you want to compile the whole source with those flags, then just do:

  CFLAGS="-msse4.1 -funroll-loops -ftree-vectorize" ./configure

Changing the optimization flags for existing code will have a larger
impact and should be considered separately from checksums.
