For the first two patches which actually make it compile, I do think
they should go into 0.16.2.

For the third one regarding optimised builds by default, well that's a
pure policy call.  Personally I think that defaulting to builds with
sane optimisations turned on helps users out and follows a path of
least surprise, especially considering that pixman's configure already
turns on relevant SSE2/MMX/etc flags.
