We should consider these blocker bugs.

If we can't make this release with the GUI working on Mac OS X and
Windows, then we shouldn't make it at all. The GUI should be our major
release goal.

I'm doing a Octave builds on Mac OS X.VIII and X.V, and I'll start
attacking these bugs.

In my opinion Octave 4 has to be stable in windows and mack before we have the BIG release.

 I would like to see a release candidate out soon, because even on Ubuntu 12.04 I can't get a compile that works correctly. ( can't open an old .m file with the GUI)
