Yep, that's probably what's happening: your MBP is an old 2009 model
running a Penryn CPU. Lacks SSE4.1 and some AVX instructions. When we've
seen this before, it was an AVX instruction in a binary.

Hmmm. Maybe one of GCC's dependencies also has an unsupported
instruction in its binary?

Can you try `brew reinstall --build-from-source gmp isl libmpc mpfr` and
then try rebuilding gcc from source again?

Ahhh, I see. Yes, it seems you need a dynare that's built specifically
against your Octave installation. The Homebrewed dynare will not work
with then.

Hmm. Let me think a bit about how could support dynare.

The way we support other binary packages that are needed for things like
Octave Forge packages is to just include them all in the
build itself, so they're ready and waiting for you. Maybe we'll do that
with dynare too. Looks license-compatible.
