I was trying to build an Oct file using the mkoctfile script inside the .app
bundle from the OctaveForge website. It complained about not being able to
find gsed. I know from my own experience building on OSX that the default sed
doesn't play nice with the Octave build process and I usually use the macports
or fink gsed instead. 

I then installed a recent version of gsed in /opt/local and then made a
symbolic link for gsed in the /Applications/Octave.app/Contents/Resources/bin
directory and then mkoctfile worked fine.

I guess I was expecting that since the .app bundle contains all the other
possible dependencies included that the gsed binary would have been included
also so that mkoctfile could be used out-of-the-box from within the .app
bundle. I expect this was accidental, but thought I would make a bug report
