'pkg.m' in particular is hopelessly broken; Octave packaging in general is 
_not_ spec'ed.

As simple as that.

I have my own version of 'pkg.m' (which I published to the list), and I build 
_all_ the packages I can from scratch, both global and local, and they are all 
autoloaded in my case, and if a package interferes with what I need to do, I 
explicitly unload it in my script.
