I'm not sure.  There's high demand for raw MD5, but the implementation
is non-optimal and I don't recall whether the "fmt" file is explicitly
freely licensed or public domain.  Other than that, the raw MD5 code in
the latest jumbo patch is fairly reliable and portable.

Oh, that's OK.

I don't think you had to.  You can invoke make like:

make targetnamehere OPT_NORMAL=

I've just confirmed that it works as intended.

This is slightly wrong.  It alters behavior on non-ARM by having both
-funroll-loops and -finline-functions active for source files compiled
with OPT_INLINE.  Previously, -funroll-loops was not active for those
source files.

So I suggest that you simply alter the make invocation on ARM.
