I think you mean pdf from texi.  I tried the following:

    (cd doc ; TEXINPUTS=".:./..::" texi2pdf octave.texi)
and the generated octave.pdf is perfect.  If nobody objects, I am going to
replace the PS files by the PDF files in the octave2.1-doc package.

A suggestion for the upstream authors: you might include a rule for building
octave.pdf in doc/Makefile.in, something like this:

octave.pdf: $(MAIN_TEXINFO) $(SUB_TEXINFO) ../conf.texi
        -TEXINPUTS="$(srcdir):$(srcdir)/..:$(TEXINPUTS):"; \
          export TEXINPUTS; \
          texi2pdf $<
