In any case where octave-forge is at now, after the stuff I've committed

have it in the octave package manager

Similarly for extra/soctcl

3) extra/tk_octave as there are some really quite complex install
issues, such as having a version of octave built with pthreads that I
can't see how to deal with in the package manager, though initial
packaging is done. Paul do you want to deal with this?

For various reasons I haven't touched tk_octave in ages (soctcl is
doing the job I need it to, and tk_octave doesn't have locking, so
with some vanishingly small probability memory could be deleted
which is still being used).  I'm content to let it fester, or have
it marked as unmaintained, or removed entirely.
