I added this code with the modification to use \ls instead of ls so that aliased versions of ls don't impact the result.

The current version of GCC in brew for macOS is gcc-13, but install-deps.sh explicitly exports CC=gcc-11 in install_osx(), which is not found and causes the swig configure to fail.

Unfortunately, I think you need to list all the versions of gcc that brew has installed and pick the latest one.

Here's a diff of the change that worked for me:
