Using 'grep -r octave.mk *' in the mxe directory I see that configure.ac,

remove octave.mk from dist-files.mk and index.html, and to update
configure.ac to use default-octave.mk.

I ran 'make clean' and 'autoconf' and am now testing whether I can do a
full build.

The mxe-octave makefile is really complicated and does lots of transformations on variables so unfortunately grep won't find everything. And then there are some conventions that are not immediately obvious.

I checked in the following change to remove the "octave" package:


If I remember correctly, later versions of mxe (not mxe-octave) don't rely on the index.html file to indicate which packages (and src/PKG.mk files) are part of the collection.
