Follow-up Comment #6, bug #36677 (project octave):
There was a bit of a miscommunication. Octave-Forge scripts shouldn't have to
do anything with gnulib. Octave core needs to implement
canonicalize_file_name consistently and it should be doing this by pulling the
gnulib module. For some reason ./configure on your system didn't pull the
module as it was supposed to. This is really a problem with the build system
problem for core Octave.
But, if we can get gnulib working then canonicalize_file_name will definitely
return an empty string. Thus, the original problem remains.
Maybe you can check the file name to see if it begins with a drive letter and
if it doesn't you can use make_absolute_pathname.
