Update of bug #46521 (project octave):

                 Summary: [octave forge] (communications) fails to build with
latest dev octave => [octave forge] (communications) fails to build with
latest stable octave


Follow-up Comment #32:

The communications package is a good training for newcomers to become package
maintainers ;-)

Due to new questions on the mailing list, here the updated "getting starting
OF package building" with great thanks to John Donoghue for constantly
providing new patches for this four years outdated package.

>From some Linux terminal, inside some temporary directory, run:

hg clone http://hg.code.sf.net/p/octave/communications
wget -O octave-5.0-3-all.patch
wget -O comms-hdf3.patch
cd communications
hg patch ../octave-5.0-3-all.patch
hg patch ../comms-hdf3.patch
make dist

Within Octave 5.1.0, change to that build directory (cd ..) and run:

pkg install -forge control
pkg install -forge signal
pkg install communications-1.2.1.tar.gz
