I think there was an upstream bug report about the dblquad test failing
at some point, may be related.

The mips build failure looks also related to JIT, doesn't it? Just not
in the unit test as with the other ports:

| Operand is null
|   %2 = call %octave_base_value* @octave_jit_binary_any_any(i32 0,
%octave_base_value* %0, %octave_base_value* %1)
| Operand is null
|   ret %octave_base_value* %2
| Broken module found, compilation aborted!
| Stack dump:
| 0.	Running pass 'Module Verifier' on function
| /bin/sh: line 1: 16228 Aborted                 ../../run-octave -f -q
-H ./mk_doc_cache.m doc-cache ./macros.texi ../../scripts/DOCSTRINGS
| make[4]: *** [doc-cache] Error 1

This may go away when JIT is disabled.
