Have a look at 

which implements the much faster Mersenne Twister RNG for Octave and provides 
Uniform and Standard Normal deviates, just like rand and randn. I found this
to be on the order of four times faster than Octave's built-in RNG.  

According to the latest figures, 43% of all statistics are totally worthless.
