In my most recent case of a dev build,
was left in the install even though gsvd.m had been moved.

This is a long-standing problem. The safest action would 
be for make install to "pre-clear" (rm -rf ...) all directories
down the root paths for the new installation.
This means,
rm -rf /usr/local/share/octave/4.3.0+/*
etc. ...
for example.
I cannot think for a way to reliably select the directories that
need to be cleared. So, doing all of them for the given version
seems the only safe choice.
