The FLTK backend is actively under development. If you're happy with the state 
of the FLTK for the MacOS X binaries at Octave Forge, you can download and run 
3.2.3 (Liam commented on this yesterday, I think).

Otherwise, you'll need to build from the sources. For that you'll also need to 
satisfy the dependencies. The dependencies may be handled by either the Fink or 
MacPorts package managers. 

I replied to your earlier inquiry on the subject of using MacPorts below.

Last month, Michael Godfrey summarized how to build the developers sources, on 
MacOS X, without using a package manager.
