Seems that the default binutils on OS/2 is too old to support AVX2, 
attached patch works around this. Not the best solution as best would be 
configure tests, but simple.
I'll file a bug about this but it'll be a while before anything is done 
about it.
After this the build dies with,
util.c: In function 'benchmark_function':
util.c:124:17: error: 'CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID' undeclared (first use 
in this function)
   clock_gettime (CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID, &start) ;

Would using gettimeofday() be accurate enough? Perhaps simpler just to 
disable the microbench test on OS/2 as gettimeofday() would require a 
configure test and OS/2 is a minor platform?
