Description: After upgrading to extra/chromium 35.0.1916.114-1, chromium won't run - crashing with illegal instruction

Steps to reproduce:
run chromium

It appears that chromium is now compiled with SSE2, which is not available on my AMD Athlon XP. I can't find anything which directly addresses this, but I would be very disappointed if Arch actually considers this CPU too old to be supported.

If I'm off base on this, just let me know what other information I can provide to track down the problem.
