<AWT Dev> splashscreen.so is missing pnggccrd.c

Thanks for your patience; you were entirely right,
it was indeed necessary to define PNG_NO_MMX_CODE.
Since pnggccrd.c is never compiled, and it contains the MMX code,
the only correct thing appears to be to define this macro unconditionally.
The obvious patch follows (tested on 32-bit Ubuntu Linux with
very recent gcc toolchain)
(Has anyone actually tested png splashscreen images on 32 or 64-bit Linux?)
