Thanks much. I successfully obtained the development tools there, but find that installation via the package managers is not a simple process -- there seem to be a number of adjusments required here and there, one of the package managers indicates that I need to know the path to (which Finder can't find on my machine), etc. I think I will need to spend some time getting to know the terminal side of the Mac better to make this work.

Ironically, I was able to get the Windows port of Octave running fine and drawing plots under Parallels on the Mac, which solves the immediate need. But I do want to get it worked out the other way.

The full-disk encryption, incidentally, is not Apple. I'm told I'll have to give up my Mac for at least a couple of days to have the data decrypted, the Mavericks upgrade done, then data reencrypted. Thus why I haven't upgraded yet.
