I think there is a misunderstanding, you are speaking about the backend fltk, 
which is not for gui's but for plotting. fltk-octave was a gui project for 
octave. It went the same way as many other such projects. After a while it was 
unmaintained or unfinished.

It will be a lot of (maybe wasted) work to make fltk-octave work again.

If you want to build sophisticated gui with callback from and to octave use 
the java package from octave forge and interact with java (I use that) or have 
a look at the pytave python bindings which are maintained and look promising 
(though I do not use them).
