Version 3.2.3 moved closer to compatibility with Matlab. However, the behavior 
of the legend is an exception to that. The developers are currently working on 
this problem.

As a work around, you can modify the axis plotbox position by. For example ...

        x = 0:0.1:10;
        plot (x, sin (x), x, cos (x))
        set (gca, "position", get (0, "defaultaxesposition") + [0, 0, -1, 0] * 
        xlabel ("Angle, radians")
        ylabel ("Amplitude")
        legend ({"sin(x)", "cos(x)"}, "location", "eastoutside")
