The "octave-help-list" perhaps would be more appropriate; forwarded accordingly.

bug-octave seems more appropriate to me, so long as John doesn't
mind, but whatever.

When attemping to compile octave-forge-2004.02.12
gcc version 3.3.2 20040119 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.2-8)
on fedora core 2 test 1


It appears to me that you compiling octave-forge against stock redhat
octave. That version does not have --enable-shared option which is
required for octave forge. It has other shortcomings as well: it uses
a reference version of BLAS and fftpack.

Thanks for the diagnosis.  I would have had trouble with this one.

Quentin Spencer has RPM's on the octave wiki:
Somewhere under Install Octave links.  I don't know
which red hat systems they work on.

If octave is not compiled with --enable-shared, then octave-forge
configure should detect this and not try to build any oct-files.  A
simple hack is to set MKOCTFILE to ':'.  The proper solution is to
modify all the leaf makes so that target all does nothing if
HAVE_SHARED is not defined.  Feel free to contribute patches ;-)
