That's not the only question; there's also packaging and portability.
It could be that people only run proj on desktop systems that already
have C++.

Wiuh respect to packaging, are you proposing to detect the SSE
instructions at compile time, or at runtime, and how does this interact
with building packages on one system that run on another.  Or is this
only for amd64?
