Subject: MD5 intrinsics compile-time condition

magnum, Jim -

I don't know if you noticed, but the benchmark results that W.A. posted
to john-users indicate a problem:

Benchmarking: FreeBSD MD5 [32/64 X2]... (4xMPI) DONE
Raw:	34034 c/s real, 34034 c/s virtual

Benchmarking: dynamic_27: FreeBSD MD5 [SSE2i 4x3]... (4xMPI) DONE
Raw:	67824 c/s real, 67152 c/s virtual

Benchmarking: dynamic_28: Apache MD5 [SSE2i 4x3]... (4xMPI) DONE
Raw:	68388 c/s real, 68388 c/s virtual

Apparently, the condition that enables the use of intrinsics is not the
same for md5 vs. dynamic_27 and 28, and apparently it is non-optimal for
md5 for certain gcc version(s) (I guess Apple's gcc 4.2).

Would you look into this, please?
