ci has reproduced this issue with version 11.4.4-r1 - Updating summary.

This one looks fun. NTL determines that you don't have AVX2 support:

  *** Checking for feature: AVX2 [no]

But that check consists of,

  #if (!defined(__GNUC__) || !defined(__x86_64__) || !defined(__AVX2__))
  #error "AVX2 not supported"

  #if (NTL_BITS_PER_LONG != 64 || NTL_BITS_PER_INT != 32 
                               || NTL_DOUBLE_PRECISION != 53)
  #error "AVX2 not supported"
  // sanity check -- code that uses this feature also relies on this              

  #error "AVX2 not supported"

and to me it looks like all the sub-checks are satisfied. From the build log again,

  bits per long = 64
  bits per int = 32
  double precision = 53
  *** Checking for feature: ALIGNED_ARRAY [yes]

So I guess it must be defined(__GNUC__) or defined(__x86_64__) that is causing the problem? Can you check?
Comment 5 Michael Orlitzky gentoo-dev 2022-01-18 14:44:30 UTC
Or I guess your CPU flags could be wrong (no avx2?)...
