Only when trying to test via running "tests/runAllTests.m" after loading your package I faced a problem. Namely that mfiles moves to all subdirectories of that test folder of matgeom and calls the builtin function "runtests". I think the intention is to run all "test_*.m" files in that subdirectories. But instead, when calling "runtests" without arguments, it starts to test ALL functions on the Octave load path and does not run any of matgeoms test files.

Dear Kai,
Thank you very much for investing time on this.
I have actually not yet integrated the upstream test in the octave
forge matgeom package. If you check the folder
'octave_pkg/OF/matgeom1.0.0/inst' generated by 'make dist' you will
see they are not included in the distribution.
The problem is that there is an homonymous function in matlab [1],
that doesn't seem to be compatible with the builtinin in octave. I
couldn't find a bug report on this, shall we make one? I think this is
a 'matlab compatibility' bug.
Matgeom is expecting the matlab behavior.
Regards,
JPi
