CMake doesn't detect Altivec support
While installing 4.5.1 with CMake on PowerPC, the Altivec nonbonded kernels are not detected, although they are when installing using autoconf, even though these are non-functional (bug report to follow). The log file simply reports that standard kernels are being used:

I commited a patch: cc79213a5e0722715b63ad5c82f7fa7f4d2d3a70.
Can you check whether it works now?
Yes, it does. Thank you! The only weird part is that the use of Altivec kernels is not reported in the md.log file any more. Is this expected? I get the correct output, building with -DGMX_ACCELERATION=ALTIVEC.
