Sorry for the trivial question but...  What debian Qt packages are needed to
compile octave?
None for the released version; libqt4-dev and libqscintilla-dev for
the development version.

The configure script probably could use your patches for better
diagnosing the lack of QScintilla, if this is indeed the problem.

Hmmm.  I have both of those installed but no joy.

Looking at the configure script, there are checks for some Qt libraries and QScintilla in different places. I can't figure out exactly what they are checking for, so I have no idea what I need to be installing.

I am totally ok with submitting patches if I could figure out this rats nest of undocumented code. And even that I could probably do if I had the time to spend countless hours figuring it out. But fuck it, I really don't need the "GUI" anyway and I can and do make the contributions I am able to make.

Never mind. This list has got to where even simple questions bring snide comments and sniping.
