Any chance we could get an automated build of the latest dev build posted to
ftp.gnu.org? I'm frankly struggling with getting the dev build compiled on my
Mac, so I haven't been able to test the fixes you've posted for my bug reports
(much appreciated)! 

That said, I've had great success getting a new Homebrew formula working that
can grab 3.8.0 from the FTP site, patch, configure, and compile without
intervention. So I think the problem is that I'm not using quite the same
environment that Homebrew is when I'm bootstrapping the repo source.

If there was a package posted to ftp.gnu.org containing the tip, perhaps
called "octave-nightly.tar.gz" etc., *already bootstrapped*, I'd have no
trouble building bleeding edge releases.

Thanks for the consideration.
