I haven't really looked in to if it's possible to switch off SSE3
support during build of OpenNI. I have to get back to you on that.
It's auto-detected during build right now if it's supported on the
build system, in this case on the Launchpad build systems. Many build
scripts have that as an option but OpenNI is not the standard way.
