Subject: linux-ppc32-altivec build failure

Using make target linux-ppc32-altivec on Ubuntu 12.04 ppc32 with gcc 
4.6.3 results in the following error received everywhere the vec_sel() 
intrinsic is used in DES_bs_b.c and sboxes-s.c:

In file included from DES_bs_b.c:1082:0:
sboxes-s.c: In function ‘s1’:
sboxes-s.c:59:2: error: invalid parameter combination for AltiVec intrinsic
sboxes-s.c:63:2: error: invalid parameter combination for AltiVec intrinsic
[...]
DES_bs_b.c:1480:4: error: invalid parameter combination for AltiVec 
intrinsic
make[1]: *** [DES_bs_b.o] Error 1


The issue has been previously[0] reported[1] and a patch is 
available[2], but it seems the fix has yet to make its way into the 
tree. Raising the issue again in hopes someone can commit it :) This 
issue affects both core and jumbo.
