The hard dependency on SSE3 instructions (FISTTPL) makes srcds_linux abort with “Illegal instruction” on certain CPUs. Version unknown since there is no logging or anything before it crashes, but here goes md5sum( = 0b4720f7e307332fba3aed57d2e704e8. Is it too much to ask supporting slightly less-capable CPUs?

Add "-debug" to the ./srcds_run command line to generate a debug.log to help with solving this problem
