First, thanks for scoping this out.  Second, I went to the binutils directory
on www.gnu.org, and found some comments indicating the newest stuff has
support for SSE2.  However, I couldn't figure out much more than that.  So,
I grabbed last night's snapshot, and installed it on torc19.  If you put
/home/rwhaley/local/P4/bin as the first entry in your path, I think gcc
will use the one I installed.  Can you see if that guy will compile your
routine?  If not, maybe you can post a very simple SSE2 file, so we can
iterate until we get an assembler and/or gcc that can handle the SSE2
stuff, without having to have you test each one . . .
