I just posted this report about my experience building Octave on OSX 10.9 with 
Macports on the Macports tracker:


Although this refers specifically to a build through Macports, I'm linking here 
as some of my experience might
(or might not) be helpful for those building via Fink or MXE.

In particular, no matter how hard I tried, I was unable to build using apple's 
clang, only gcc47 and gcc48 seemed
to work for me, I'd be curious to know whether this also applies to mxe and/or 

Also I had a huge number of test fails in make check when linking to OpenBLAS, 
therefore, although it is very lenghty
to install and it is also known to have efficiency problems on OSX, I had to 
restrict to ATLAS.


I haven't tried anything later than 3.6.4--I was able to get that version to build with clang on 10.9 with a few tweaks.
