[Debian-med-packaging] Bug#861911: e-mem: FTBFS on non-x86: unrecognized command line option '-mpopcnt'

Source: e-mem
Version: 0.0+20160706-1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream
Justification: fails to build from source

Hi, me again. :-)

Builds of e-mem for non-x86 architectures have been failing.  The
immediate error is

  g++: error: unrecognized command line option '-mpopcnt'

but I suspect there may be deeper portability issues.  Please take a
look and either fix non-x86 builds or explicitly restrict the
package to

  Architecture: any-amd64 any-i386 any-x32

so that other architectures' autobuilders know not to bother with it.
