Hi John,

Thanks so much for your willingness to try and help me. I'm not sure how to proceed. It seems like it might be a bigger problem than I thought to get a portable version of octave working. I am using the control package and it may require .oct files. Is it more feasible perhaps to make a self contained octave setup that uses dynamic libraries?

I'd be willing to try to fix the Makefiles, but there may still be
some problems.  The last time I tried to build a fully static version
on my Debian system, it failed to link because there some
dependencies were only available as shared libraries.  Also, there
will likely be some problems with trying to load .oct files, which are
normally built as shared libraries.
