Octave is built by this point. If you just want 'make all' to declare
success, what I usually do in this situation is

    touch doc/interpreter/octave.dvi
    touch doc/interpreter/
    touch doc/interpreter/octave.pdf
    make all

The specific error message

    No file octave.cps.

is cryptic, but it means that 'texindex' failed to generate the sorted
index files (concepts, functions, operators, etc) for some reason. I
used to see this error randomly from Texinfo, possibly version 6.6 but
fixed in 6.7, because I no longer see it.
