Brute force -- _all_ Octave statistics functions are now in the OF
statistics package (with the changes to the license text as indicated
above, thanks) and will be installed if needed. We can weed out some
of them still.

No renaming/deprecating is done as yet, this can be done later.

Cross-compilation is cared for, but needs manual configuration as
indicated by an error message or in the README.crosscompilation file.
