thanks to your suggestion configure command runs without errors.
I do have an error while running make:

/bin/bash ../libtool  --tag=F77   --mode=compile f77  -O -mieee-fp -c -o arpack/src/libcruft_la-cgetv0.lo `test -f 'arpack/src/cgetv0.f' || echo './'`arpack/src/cgetv0.f
libtool: compile:  f77 -O -mieee-fp -c arpack/src/cgetv0.f  -fPIC -o arpack/src/.libs/libcruft_la-cgetv0.o
Cannot open file debug.h
/usr/bin/f77: aborting compilation
make[2]: *** [arpack/src/libcruft_la-cgetv0.lo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tools/octave/octave-3.4.2/libcruft'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tools/octave/octave-3.4.2'
make: *** [all] Error 2

For sake of completeness I send attached the log of configure and of make.

Thank you again,
Kind Regards

Do you have the -dev package installed?  Try

 apt-get build-dep octave3.2
 apt-get install libpcre3-dev

and then run configure again.
