Testing a build

How would one go about making sure everything works? I built GPG for
Windows following the instructions at
http://clbianco.altervista.org/gnupg/eng/gnupg.html (a link at
gnupg.org/download.html). Unfortunately, I cannot find the libcurl
package mentioned. It says the package is labeled "libcurl" and not
"binary", yet it says there are .dll files in it. I seem to be missing
libintl3.dll (IIRC), which causes dd not to start during configuration,
but I am still able to build GPG (it runs). I did not bother with
libiconv. I've replaced the official binaries with my own (keeping a
backup, of course), and Enigmail seems to be fine, I am signing this
with my binaries. I also changed CFLAGS from
CFLAGS='-O3 -mtune=i386 -march=i386 -mfpmath=387 -mno-mmx -mno-sse
- -mno-3dnow -mno-sse2'
CFLAGS='-O3 -mtune=prescott -march=prescott -mfpmath=sse -mmmx -msse
- -msse2 -msse3 -mno-3dnow'
since my processor supports SSE3.
I have three questions:
How can I make sure everything is working right?
(A bit OT) Will the instruction set change cause any noticeable improvement?
(Also a bit OT) If it's supposed to, how can I make sure it is?
