I suspect that this patch may be incorrect, or at least might have
some unwanted side-effects. From reading the documentation, using
-maltivec will allow GCC to generate AltiVec instructions from
ordinary, non-vectorised C-code. Currently, an AltiVec-enabled build
of FFmpeg should work on a G3, and using -maltivec might break this.
Have you verified that this still works on a G3s? If not, I may be
able to check it later.
It's worth noting that -mcpu=G4 and -mcpu=G5 imply -maltivec.
