I don't see 1:2.8.1-0ubuntu3 in the archive, nor in the upload queue, nor in sponsorship queue. Jonathan, where is this fix or should I look into fixing this FTBFS?

Trying out git master is no better.
Disabling optimized code-paths still does not compile, as intel specific asm is used in the generic "scalar" implementation and helper functions.

1.3.0 makes the situation just a tad better, as now cmake checks for the architecture and boils out with a nicer error message in case of non-x86:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:144 (message):
   Unsupported target architecture 'armv7l'. No support_???.cpp file exists for this architecture.

  * Add back support for i386 in CMakeLists.txt.
  * Only build on the architectures that upstream supports, which is: amd64
    arm* i386 x32 (Closes: #860987, LP: #1298996).
