The test code has an alignment problem under gcc 4.x (that we should fix...)
When run within the normal gnu radio framework, the alignment
constraint is met and the right answer is computed.

It's safe to ignore the error.

I'm open for suggestions as to how we should select SSE vs 3DNow.
Shall we benchmark the first time through and store the answer?

It appears that though you have an AMD64 machine, GNU Radio is
being compiled as a 32-bit app.  Can you send me the output of
uname -a and configure?

Also, is the cpu MHz output right? 800?? Seems way low, unless you're
in some kind of power saving mode (which wouldn't be good for
