Comment (by kencu):

 Openblas does compile tests in detail for avx512 features in c_check, but
 I believe we don't let it.

 instead, the compilers PG does this simplistic test:
 proc avx_compiler_isset {} {
     global configure.cc

     set cc ${configure.cc}

     # check for mpi
     if {[string match *mpi* $cc]} {
         set cc [exec ${configure.cc} -show]

     if {[string match *clang* $cc]} {
         return 1

     return 0

 It looks to me that the real issue here at the end of it appears to be
 that Jeremy switched the default variant on newer systems for cctools away
 from +xcode and back to +llvm70 for some reason, and all this fallout has
 happened due to that.
