Description: the pkgbuild for vc does not explicitly
configure the target architecture, which defaults to
the architecture of the build machine. i.e.

// CPU architecture to optimize for. Using an incorrect setting here can result in crashes of the resulting binary because of invalid instructions used.
Setting the value to "auto" will try to optimize for the architecture where cmake is called.
Other supported values are: "none", "generic", "core", "merom" (65nm Core2), "penryn" (45nm Core2), "nehalem", "westmere", "sandy-bridge", "ivy-bridge", "atom", "k8", "k8-sse3", "barcelona", "istanbul", "magny-cours", "bulldozer", "interlagos", "piledriver".

I believe that there needs to be an explicit option to cmake to set "none" or "generic":

Additional info:
* package version(s) vc-0.7.3-3
* could cause crashes in calligra (the main user of vc)

Steps to reproduce: This "bug" report is based on my reading
of the sources. I have not confirmed it by testing.
I may be wrong :)
This task depends upon
