It is possible to use Octave's numerical libraries separately from the
Octave interpreter, but it doesn't work as well as it could.  The
biggest problem right now is that liboctave depends on some other
non-numerical libraries like readline, glob, etc.  Eventually, I hope
this can be fixed so that using Octave's C++ numerical libraries only
requires liboctave (the C++ stuff) and libcruft (the Fortran stuff).
