I can compile from the CVS archive on IRIX with the following commands:

cd octave
cd glob ; autoconf ; autoheader  ; cd ../
cd readline/ ; autoconf ; autoheader ; cd ../ 
cd kpathsea/ ; autoconf ; autoheader ; cd ../ 
cd scripts/ ; autoconf ; autoheader ; cd ../ 
autoconf ; autoheader

I tried for the first time to do this on a Linux machine.  It will
compile every thing with the exception of  Oddly enough, if I
use the bleeding-eadge releases where is made from lex.l for me I
have no problems.  I thought it must be that my flex was out of date but
this does not seem to be the case.  I am at a loss as to what could be
causing the problem.  Here is the version information for the Linux
machine in question:

$ autoconf --version 
Autoconf version 2.13  
$ autoheader --version
Autoconf version 2.13 
$ flex --version
flex version 2.5.4 
$ bison --version
GNU Bison version 1.28 
$ gmake --version

This is a RedHat 6.1 installation.  

Any clues or things I should check out will be greatly appreciated.
