Avoid -maltivec in vect.exp if not powerpc_altivec_ok

gcc.dg/vect/vect.exp uses -maltivec on PowerPC.  It should check the
powerpc_altivec_ok effective target first to avoid running the tests
on targets for which this option doesn't work.  OK to commit?

(In principle maybe some of the tests could run with SPE vectors -
i.e. with no special options on such targets - but that would require
all the effective targets to distinguish different forms of PowerPC
vectors, which seems like clearly a separate project.)
