Fix lame's configure script to correctly detect SSE support

During the exp-run in bug 206074, it was found that audio/lame gives errors with a recent clang 3.8.0 snapshot, but only on i386 [1]:

xmm_quantize_sub.c:65:34: error: always_inline function '_mm_loadu_ps' requires target feature 'mmx', but would be inlined into function 'init_xrpow_core_sse' that is compiled without support for 'mmx'
    const __m128 vec_fabs_mask = _mm_loadu_ps(&fabs_mask._float[0]);

And many more of such errors, in lame's SSE (vector) support routines.  The actual message is a little misleading, as it is really SSE support that is missing.  E.g., the program is compiled on i386-freebsd, which has i486 as default target CPU, but there is no -msse flag on the command line.  (Note that these messages go away if you set CPUTYPE to a CPU which does support SSE.)

When you compile with recent versions of gcc (4.9 and higher), you get similar errors:

In file included from xmm_quantize_sub.c:37:0:
/usr/local/lib/gcc49/gcc/i386-portbld-freebsd11.0/4.9.4/include/xmmintrin.h:929:1: error: inlining failed in call to always_inline '_mm_loadu_ps': target specific option mismatch
 _mm_loadu_ps (float const *__P)

The cause is that lame's configure script simply checks for the existence of <xmmintrin.h>, and if it exists, and can be compiled, it assumes SSE intrinsics are available.  This is not generally true anymore, because recent versions of gcc and clang removed the #ifdef __SSE__ checks from their xmmintrin.h files, and therefore a test program which only does "#include <xmmintrin.h>" will always compile, even if SSE support is turned off.

I have attempted to fix lame's configure.in and configure scripts, by letting them compile a function which actually calls an SSE intrinsic.  It works correctly for me, but my knowledge of autoconf is limited, so a double-check by an expert would be nice.

This should probably be upstreamed too.
