New issue 2060: Non sse2 backend crashing

Mohammed Fukeeslum:


Before I get to the issue itself let me point that documentation regarding 32bit build process on non-sse2 machines needs updating in two respects:

-the script doesn't check for sse2 so you're still naively building a wrong binary 

-with 2gb of ram the only practical solution is to use about 1.5 gb swap via zram

Now, with --jit-backend=x86-without-sse2 option, pypy builds fine and even starts ok but still crashes while executing an actual script with SIGILL.
