It should work, at least in theory. I'll check later today on our M1 machine.
If that doesn't work, it should be some trivial problem (that should
be straightforward to fix).
If that works, it could be that "uname" reports something different
than "arm64" on M2. That should hopefully be easy to fix as well.

What does "uname -m" (and "uname -a") report on your mac?
