It checks the build arch so it can disable/enable MMX optimisations at
build-time. FC is not available for anything less than i586, so building a
binary without MMX support would be of questionable benefit, but:

To the best of my knowledge, Sodipodi in FE has been abandoned in favour
of Inkscape (which had started as a fork of Sodipodi). Upstream, Sodipodi
is still at 0.34 (February 10, 2004).
