Look at the java bindings in the octave java package (octave-forge), it is 
maintained and it works. Java is very strong and easy for database handling.
Use that and jdbc driver for mysql to connect to mysql (or with the 
appropriate jdbc friver everything else which you can imagine). That is what I 
do when using db queries from octave. Much easier and less indirect than 
invoking scripts and parsing output from databse queries.

As far as I remeber the database package is somehow broken (at least I never 
was able to use it).
