Using newer compiler from ports on powerpc64 fixes build issue.

Same reply as bug#231835
I am working on updating cad/gmsh to version 4. I think the work is mostly done, but there is one blocking problem.
I hope to submit a review with this fix soon and hopefully you can test the build on powerpc64, since I don't have any powerpc hardware.
Update: I have to get approval to commit an update to science/cgnslib before the update to cad/gmsh.

Now that science/cgnslib has been committed, is this PR unblocked?
I committed the new cad/gmsh. I am still hoping someone with powerpc64 hardware can test the build with the new version.

Still doesn't build with base GCC.
I'd be actually surprised if upstream returned to being compatible with GCC 4.2 in new release :)

cad/gmsh: Fix powerpc64 build  and restore DOCS knob 
Submitted by: email@example.com 
Reported by: mat 
The build progresses much further with this fix (so it's necessary), but it's not fixed (it was with previous version).
It fails at including immintrin.h, I'll come up with another fix.
