In the following project the cmake script probes for SSSE3 support in

The build randomly fails on some workers, works on others:

*Compiler* support for SSSE3 (or any other CPU feature) is worker
Maybe Debian 8.0 lacks the specific compiler support.


The bundled hyperscan requires SSSE3 (and optionally uses AVX2).

Anyway, the resulting package will not run reliably on either i586 or x86_64,
as the resulting binary will try to execute SSSE3 instructions independent of
the current CPU. SSSE3 is available on most x86_64 CPUs, but not all.

You can request such hardware via constraints and the cpu flags if needed

strus should use a runtime switch to select the best usable implementation,
and fall back to a portable implementation otherwise. Crashing is not an

yes, or build it multiple times and place it into the right subdirectories
of %_libdir, so the runtime linker can decide to pick the right one.
