We had added SSE assembler routines to optimize the peak metering and
audio mixing primitives.  Previously these were only available on
non-64 bit machines, now we have both the 32 and 64 bit versions
working.  Also, these optimizations are now enabled by default both at
build time and run-time, but will only operate if the system supports
SSE (most modern systems do).  To disable the optimizations at runtime
(in case of trouble, or curiosity about the improvement) use the -O
command line option.

No, that is related to clock source timing and is a totally unrelated
jack-specific issue.
