By default, GCC will generate position-indenpendant code on Darwin,  
and -mdynamic-no-pic is one of the options that disables PIC. I've  
updated the patch to include the simplest possible logic for this:  
Either pass -DPIC or -mdynamic-no-pic to the compiler. I've also  
expanded the comment to explain this.

I had a bit of trouble understanding how asm code could be cross- 
platform, but that's because they're macros. I've changed the patch  
to use the same approach as Sam Hocevar did in his submission: Change  
all occurrances to the less explicit, but equally valid .p2align macro.

Also included is a change in mpegvideo_mmx.c which was in Sam  
Hocevar's patch, and not mine.

I hope this is acceptable :)
