Building Octave fails with recent versions of glibc (2.16+). The error occurs
in files pulled in from gnulib:

In file included from md5.h:26:0,
                 from md5.c:27:
./stdio.h:1032:1: error: 'gets' undeclared here (not in a function)
make[5]: *** [md5.lo] Error 1
make[5]: Leaving directory

The problem has already been fixed upstream in gnulib[1], so it should be as
simple as updating Octave's pull of the code.
