Trying to build ncArray I get:

+ octave -H -q --no-window-system --no-site-file --eval 'pkg build
'''-verbose''' /tmp/rpm/octave-ncarray-1.0.2-1.fc20.x86_64
package name 'ncarray' doesn't correspond to its filename 'ncArray'
error: called from 'pkg>install' in file /usr/share/octave/3.6.4/m/pkg/pkg.m
near line 744, column 11
error: called from:
error:   /usr/share/octave/3.6.4/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 772, column 5
error:   /usr/share/octave/3.6.4/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 636, column 3
error:   /usr/share/octave/3.6.4/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 493, column 7
error: Bad exit status from /tmp/rpm/rpm-tmp.bIjCCk (%build)

In pkg.m parsing the DESCRIPTION file:

  desc.name = tolower (desc.name);

And in all dep handling:

  deps = split_by (tolower (depends), ",");

So as written it seems like all octave packages really should be all lower
case.  Or we need another tolower() in the install check of directory file
