Works for me!

> -- XVid built-in (with xvidcore lib).
> -- MP3 built-in (with mp3lame lib).

> -- OpenAL and ALut built-in.

> - i686 SSE optimized build.
> - i686 SSE2 optimized build.
> - i686 SSE3 optimized build.
> - i686 3DNow optimized build.

Great, it's good to see progress on these unofficial builds, maybe we can
get these linked to from the downloads page for folks who want more
flexibility than we provide officially for now?
