Hi Michael,

Can you please post the detailed instructions of how to build GNUBG
for the latest machines?

I have obviously built GNUBG many times before, but last time I
suspect the build was not optimal, and uses only a single core.
So I am specifically referring to the flags to give ./configure for a
modern machine with sse and multiple cores etc. If you have to tweak
the setup after the build, include this  as well please.

Many thanks, Joseph
