Subject: RE: 1.7.9-jumbo5 fails to build with OMPFLAGS = -fopenmp -msse2

I found this same issue on cygwin. I almost never build for OMP myself, and
when I tried it failed. The problem was traced down to the setting of
ASFLAGS within the rules for cygwin (and possibly others, mingw for sure, if
it can do OMP).  ASFLAGS has to have -sse2 added for the linkage to work.
