BTW, there's no "Owl 3.0-current", there's just "Owl-current" (of a
certain date), which has moved away from full 3.0 binary compatibility
with the OpenSSL version change, and there's "Owl 3.0-stable".  You
appear to be using the former.

I do see how our Owl branches/versions may be confusing, but I don't see
how we could make it simpler without dropping useful properties - having
a stable branch with binary compatibility to the previous release and
having a development branch where we can move to newer libraries.

Actually, this is precisely what I did myself during my own test builds
of -omp-des-7 for 32-bit x86 when someone on john-users asked about that
a few months ago.

Since the patch is a hack anyway, adding this to OMPFLAGS is fine.
It should have no effect for x86-64 builds, where -msse2 is implied.
