Octave forge missing from Etch ?

I am using Debian Etch (testing) distribution. During some customary updates, 
I found to my horror that both octave-forge and octave-matcompat were 

Upon trying to install them, I get :

sudo apt-get install octave-forge
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package octave-forge is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package octave-forge has no installation candidate

Is this a temporary problem (hopefully) ? I use octave forge functions a lot 
and do not want to sit and compile it for an otherwise Debian packaged octave
