This problem stemmed from the fact that 32-bit Linux malloc does not align on 16 byte boundaries causing SIMD instructions to crash. This had been disabled when the ARCH was i686, but athlon machines set the ARCH to "athlon" causing SIMD instructions to be compiled in.

Richard solved this problem and simultaneously enhanced the use of SSE2 and SSE3 to compile in things more customized for the current hardware.
