Description

When running mplayer on Solaris (x86), I get the following message:

Cannot test OS support for SSE, leaving disabled.

which appears to mean that there's simply no code written for Solaris to determine whether or not the CPU on which mplayer is running supports SSE and the OS allows you to use the instructions.

Solaris provides a system call, getisax(2), which returns this information.

I'm not sure whether the explicit setting of hasSSE2 is necessary, but it's obviously easy enough to take out.
