The problem does seem to be finally fixed.

Running ./configure led me to believe I had the wrong version of the hdf5
libraries installed, so I tried all 4 versions that are available from the
Ubuntu repository and used the one that seemed to configure correctly i.e.
./configure gives

  QRUPDATE libraries:   -lqrupdate
  HDF5 libraries:       -lhdf5
  CURL libraries:       -lcurl

with no warnings, and recompiled Octave. Running it for the first time still
gave an error, but this time with information about which line in my script
was failing. It turned out that a .oct function I have written called "ema"
was mistakenly being called by mma in my script, leading to the error. I
have NO idea how "ema" was transcribed to "mma," and I can only assume that
it must be a complete coincidence that there may be a function or routine
called "mma" in the library that Octave was complaining that I don't have
installed, instead of giving a normal "mma undefined" error, and that this
all happened immediately after apt-get autoremove removed some obsolete
packages from my system. Anyway, things do now seem to be working as normal.
