If you're trying to build on Debian or Ubuntu, you want to run:

    sudo apt-get install build-dep gnubg

to get all the dependencies installed.  Then you can run:

    apt-get source gnubg

to get the latest source from Ubuntu, go into the gnubg directory, go to
the debian subdirectory, and edit the rules file.  Find this bit:

ifeq ($(DEB_HOST_ARCH_CPU),amd64)
    SSE = --enable-simd=sse2
    SSE = --enable-simd=no

and change the flags in the amd64 branch.  You should then be able to run
debian/rules build and it should do the rest.
