Octave itself is relocatable. Therefore just copy all installed files with keeping folder structure to the USB memory. However, octave-forge packages uses absolute path so that that they are not used as they are.
>> pkg rebuild all
is required from octave prompt to re-usable octave-forge packages each time you insert the USB to PC.
