For some reason, it is looking for paths of a MacPorts installation of octave.

However, it seems that you may have upgraded your version of macOS w/o reinstalling your Homebrew packages (aarch64-apple-darwin20 vs. aarch64-apple-darwin21). This caused libgfortran not to be found, and, thus,  the fatal error.

I am running macOs 12.1 on M1X apple sillicon octave 6.4.0 installed via homebrew.

The path /opt/homebrew/opt/gcc/lib/gcc/11/gcc/aarch64-apple-darwin20/11 does not exist on my system but /opt/homebrew/opt/gcc/lib/gcc/11/gcc/aarch64-apple-darwin21/11 does exist.
