gperf does not exist on my system.  @$GPERF in Makeconf was
blank, and the command that got executed when
"$GPERF -a octave.gperf" or whatever got executed was
"-a octave.gperf > oct-gperf.h" with error "-a not found", but
that not being enough an error to stop the make.  Further
downstream, the make derails because oct-gperf.h is an empty file.

I have installed flex, bison, and gperf (the programs which I
think are complained inadequately about) now, and have run from
a fresh CVS this morning and it built just fine.

Octave's configure script does test for gperf, and complains if it
doesn't find it.

Was gperf missing on your system, or was it an old version that didn't
do the right thing?
