You have another version of ghostscript installed in /usr/local/... (e.g.
from texlive). The proper solution would be to deinstall this version.
However, you could also force homebrew to overwrite it:  

brew link ---force ghostscript

Afterwards "brew install octave" should succeed.


P.S.: Please reply to this mail with the correct subject (and not
