I just went through the process on Ubuntu. First I installed octave's 
dependencies and the checkinstall package.

        sudo apt-get install checkinstall
        sudo apt-get build-deps octave3.2

Then from the directory containing octave's sources ...


Next, I used checkinstall to produce the deb file. This will also install the 
new octave package. The checkinstall will ask a few questions. I used the 
defaults for all of them. The one caveat is that developers sources often have 
version numbers like 3.7.0+. When asked, this will need to be modified to 
eliminate the "+".

        sudo checkinstall make install

At this point the deb file was created *and* installed. To remove it ...

        sudo dpk -r octave
