I may not have everything exactly correct below, but the process below should 
cover about all that is needed to build Octave 3.6 and then install via apt-get.

The dependencies for 3.6.x are mostly the same as for 3.2.x. You should start 
with ...

        sudo apt-get build-deps octave3.2

... after that you should be able to build Octave-3.6 by ...


If you're using released sources, you don't need to autogen.

Once you've done that you can test drive by ...


If all looks ok, you can create a deb package and install it by ...

        sudo checkinstall make install

        sudo dpkg -i octave-local-3.6.0.deb

If you decide to update you installed octave, first remove the old one.

        apt-get remove octave-local-3.6.0
