Follow-up Comment #3, bug #54842 (project octave):

Thanks for the fast replay and the indications. By modifying the corresponding
'Makefile'(s), I tried:

0 A new 'rpcgen' which included the '-M' option (see 'rpcgen-mt' here
<https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/pull/270> and here
0 Remove the '-M' option.
0 Skip the vxi11/ directory.

(see entire outputs in the attached log files).

The first and the second actions were not successful at installing the
instrument-control package. With the third action I was finally able, but *I
might need soon or later the VXI-11 interface. Any suggestions on how to fix
this issue?*

After the third option I obtained the following warnings (see entire output in
the attached log file):

warning: autoload: 'vxi11.oct' is not an absolute filename
warning: autoload: 'vxi11.oct' is not an absolute filename
warning: autoload: 'vxi11.oct' is not an absolute filename
warning: autoload: 'vxi11.oct' is not an absolute filename
For information about changes from previous versions of the instrument-control
package, run 'news instrument-control'.

Inside Octave, the command

> pkg list

shows now:

Package Name        | Version | Installation directory
           control  |   3.1.0 | /Users/Xavi/octave/control-3.1.0
instrument-control  |   0.3.1 | /Users/Xavi/octave/instrument-control-0.3.1
            signal  |   1.4.0 | /Users/Xavi/octave/signal-1.4.0
          symbolic  |   2.7.1 | /Users/Xavi/octave/symbolic-2.7.1


*For the record:*

_The modified 'Makefile'(s) where:_

In 1 (new 'rpcgen'):


=> 'rpcgen' in line 7 changed to 'rpcgen-mt'

In 2 (removal of '-M' option):


=> Remove '-M' in line 32

In 3 (skip the vxi11/ directory):


=> Remove 'vxi11' in line 2

_The procedure to modify the 'Makefile'(s) and install the package was:_

0 Open the desired 'Makefile' with a text editor
0 Modify and save changes
0 Generate the new 'instrument-control-0.3.1.tar.gz' file:

$ tar -czf instrument-control-0.3.1.tar.gz instrument-control-0.3.1/ 

0 Inside Octave (while in the same directory of the above file) run:

> pkg install instrument-control-0.3.1.tar.gz -verbose

(file #45207, file #45208, file #45209)
