--disable-mmxext --disable-3dnow --disable-3dnowext --disable-sse
--disable-sse2 --disable-ssse3

You probably could leave the above out. Your configure script should
autodetect those options, if you have
the proper files installed.  Use ./configure --help | less to see what's
autodetected and what is not.
It should show the default settings that configure will use. I only use
--enable-xxx , if a default setting
is set to off.

You probably could leave the above out, also. After you disable all the
above CPU settings, the only thing
left is mmx. That should be left in automatically by the configure script.

I wouldn't use --disable-dvdread. You need it. Internal dvdread should be
I don't know why you want to disable dvdread unless you don't want to use
Having it enabled, shouldn't pose a problem.

When you start editing header files, you're asking for problems.

I would leave all the above out of  the configure statement and just leave
--enable static

I would leave those two out, also

I wouldn't doubt that. Again, I wouldn't mess with header files. Stick to
options on the configure script, unless you really know what you're doing.

Read the above.
