Hm - I don't find quadmath.h on M1

compute-macos-240-02:petsc svcpetsc$ which gcc-11
compute-macos-240-02:petsc svcpetsc$ find /opt/homebrew -name quadmath.h -print
compute-macos-240-02:petsc svcpetsc$ 

But I see it on intel box

compute-macos-240-01:~ balay$ which gcc-11
compute-macos-240-01:~ balay$ find /usr/local -name quadmath.h
compute-macos-240-01:~ balay$ 

So perhaps this feature is missing with gcc on M1?
